First Year Experience

FYE LogoThe First Year Experience (FYE) Program at Modesto Junior College is an exciting year long program for first time college students who welcome the support and assistance of navigating their college experience. Because MJC truly values students, the focus of the FYE program is to provide first time students with a comprehensive college experience that provides the necessary knowledge, skills, and resources that will foster success during the first year and beyond. Interaction and relationship-building opportunities with faculty, counselors, and peer mentors will facilitate and support the student’s academic, personal, and social transitions to their college environment. Both academic and non-academic active learning activities are designed to assist FYE students in making a successful transition to college in a welcoming and nurturing environment. The major functions of the program include: Counseling, Supplemental Instruction, Peer Mentors, COLSK 100 (Foundation for First Year College Success), and Summer Success Academy 

Summer Success Academy
