First Year Experience (FYE)

First Year Experience

First Year Experience (FYE) is designed to help students successfully manage the transition to college. FYE is a learning community initiative that helps students develop strategies to maximize academic success, become familiar with campus resources, and cultivate positive relationships with faculty and other students.

College Transitions Program

The College Transitions Program (CTP) serves students who show strong potential for success but don't meet Northern's admissions requirements. These students are enrolled at the university under conditional status. Learn more about CTP.
