The first year in college is the foundation of a student's success, and for their lives after college. California State University, San Bernardino recognizes the importance and value of this positive first-year experience for students, and the need for the university to facilitate students' effective transition to the University by providing a variety of experiences, opportunities, and foundational skills to help them become successful students.
First Year Experience (FYE) is committed to supporting the academic and social transition to CSUSB. If you are a student attending CSUSB for the first time, whether as a transfer student or a first-time freshman, these programs and services are designed for students like you.
Our programs and services are designed and guided by our four First Year Experience Principles: Foundation, Transition, Sense of Belonging and Success.
