The College of the Canyons’ First Year Experience (FYE) program has enjoyed considerable success in its first three iterations. Each year the program has guaranteed a full-time schedule of classes to its participants while also providing intrusive support services such as Supplemental Learning and required meetings with faculty mentors and counselors. Beginning in Fall 2014, the revised FYE program will expand upon its success by offering discipline-specific learning communities to first-time students who assess below college-level English and math. Three educational pathways will be created to appeal to the varying interests of our incoming freshman: Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM); Social Science; and Career Technical Education (CTE). Within each track, students will be required to take English and math courses while also working within a learning community comprised of their discipline-specific course and a counseling class. This cohort will extend throughout the entire school year and will include Supplemental Learning, faculty mentors, and career exploration within their chosen area. The impetus for this program redesign was to further strengthen our students’ experience of community and connection to the campus; to deepen their understanding of the self-regulation strategies necessary to be fully-engaged and successful college students; to encourage their exploration and commitment to a major and career path; and to improve the success and persistence rates of our first-time students at a critical time in their educational careers.
