OUR MISSION

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.

OUR GOALS

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.

STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES

Students will be able to:

  • Feel supported and connected to the transfer community at UCI.
  • Feel academically prepared to complete their baccalaureate degrees.
  • Identify campus resources that support their academic success.
