Freshman Year Experience Program

Freshman Year Experience (FYE) Program

The Freshman Year Experience (FYE) program provides students with the knowledge and skills to be successful at AUAF. Academic performance skills, understanding the university’s culture, policies, expectations, self-management skills, time management, and other topics are covered.

The FYE program is much more than just the University Success Course (UNV 100). It is a program designed to assist new students by providing them a well rounded Freshman Year Experience. It includes the New Student Orientation Week and the Convocation Ceremony, both of which welcome our new students to campus.

University Success
University Success (UNV 100) covers note taking skills, test taking skills, personality and learning skills, the consequences of cheating and plagiarism, and work to improve decision making skills.

New Student Orientation
New Student Orientation is a campus-wide event that is designed to orient students to AUAF’s academic environment. Activities include class registration, Math and English Placement Tests, an IT presentation and an introduction to the Bernice Nachman Marlowe Library. Special guest speakers are scheduled and new students are given a tour of the campus by members of the Student Government Association.

Academic Advising
Students at AUAF are assigned an academic advisor who assists them in the navigation of the university’s academic requirements to complete their respective degree. Freshman (0 – 30 completed credits) are assigned a professional academic advisor in the Office of Student Affairs. Students are eligible to declare their academic major after they have completed 30 credits and have at least a 2.5 Grade Point Average. Once a student is accepted into their major, they are assigned an advisor within their academic department.
