First-Year Programs

This website is tailored for students in their first year of college who are transitioning into the university setting of Florida International University.  FIU recognizes that a successful first year is critical for academic and developmental achievement in college. Recognizing that a college education takes place inside and outside of the classroom, the Office of First Year Programs has been established to introduce students to the college environment and expectations. The programs, activities, and courses featured on this site have been established to promote and support academic, intellectual, personal, and social growth.
