FYE Courses

For Freshmen

In Fall 2014, UC San Diego’s six undergraduate colleges launched a new 2-unit First Year Experience (FYE) course to help incoming freshmen optimize their college experience. The course, through weekly lecture and discussion sections, addresses challenges related to transitions from high school to a large research university and covers several topics related to the undergraduate experience. Lectures are led by faculty and smaller discussion sections by undergraduate Discussion Leaders. Currently, FYE courses are only available in Fall QTR. 

For Transfers

In Fall 2015, the undergraduate colleges launched a new 2-unit Transfer Year Experience (TYE) course to help first year transfers optimize their college experience.The TYE course, through weekly lecture and discussion sections, addresses several topics related to the undergraduate experience and the unique needs of our transfer student population. Lectures are led by the college provosts and other faculty and smaller discussion sections by undergraduate Discussion Leaders. Currently, TYE courses are only available in Fall QTR.
