WELCOME TO OUR TRANSFER COMMUNITY!
Housed under UCI’s Transfer Student Center, the First Year Transfer Experience (FYTE) is a set of services for first-year transfer students. We support the academic success of first-year transfer students by connecting them with the campus community, fostering a culture of academic excellence, and providing students with relevant and engaging programming.
We believe that by promoting the holistic development of our first-year transfers will thrive and reach their fullest potential. We aim to accomplish the following goals:
Academic Success: Provide students with tools to support their academic and transitional success by connecting them with campus and community resources.
Community Building: Cultivate a sense of belonging among transfers through quarterly workshops and events.
Career & Professional Development: Provide students with tools and opportunities that promote career and professional development to prepare students for life after UCI.
