First Year Experience at MSJC


Mt. San Jacinto College’s First Year Experience (FYE) Program is designed to make sure students have a smooth transition into college life. We provide first year students with extra support during their first two semesters, so they connect with the college and identify a degree path that leads to faster degree completion or transfer. As a result, students in FYE are more likely to persist to their second year than their fellow-peers.

2020-2021 FYE Application is now OPEN!

Submit your MSJC FYE Application today

Any first time college student can become part of the FYE program! Students with incoming transferring units are not considered first time college students. Previous dual or concurrent enrollment students are welcome to apply. Completing the FYE application DOES NOT guarantee free tuition through the MSJC Promise Program. Please see the MSJC Promise tab for details and eligibility requirements.

FYE applications must be received by May 31, 2020 to receive early registration for Fall 2020 and Spring 2021. Applications received after May 31, 2020 will only receive early registration for Spring 2021.
