First Year Experience (FYE) is a student success course required if you are a first-time college student entering Bellevue College and enrolling in 10 or more credits. Upon completion, you will receive one college-level credit.
Are you a new student who identifies as African American or Latino(a)? You are eligible to be a part of the Comprehensive Success Initiative (CSI) and would enroll in CSI instead of FYE. Learn More about CSI.
Mission of FYE:
Our mission is to help students feel a connection to Bellevue College and an increased sense of school pride. We aim to help students describe the various academic expectations and “college culture” at Bellevue College; discover major, career, and educational planning; locate, access, and feel comfortable using various Academic Support Services on campus; describe the multiple learning strategies that can assist with the transition into college; understand the importance of promoting pluralism at Bellevue College; and develop relationships with fellow students and instructor(s).
