First Year Experience

The First Year Experience (FYE) Program has been developed by the University to give you an introduction to the skills necessary for success here at Cal Poly Pomona and the building blocks for lifelong learning. Each college has developed their adaptation of the First Year Experience Program including one or more courses in which you get an overview of the opportunities and possible careers associated with your major, supplemented by activities such as visits to on-campus services, field trips, and community projects. Your College Orientation Advisor will give you more details about the program for your major.

If you have not declared a major, you are expected to participate in the Undeclared Student Program offered by Student Support and Equity Programs.
