First Year Experience

About Us! First Year Experience (FYE)

The First Year Experience (FYE) Program focuses on student success in the form of various different "pathways" based upon student interests and academic goals. Students select a pathway based upon their academic interests and are given a class schedule each semester for their first year at Chabot College. Each class schedule provides core math and English sections along with one or two additional courses geared towards the theme of each pathway. By joining an FYE pathway you are provided core courses that are typically difficult to add into as a new student, and support from various staff members across the Chabot College campus.

Joining FYE provides students the following benefits:

1) Guaranteed spot in high demand classes for fall and spring semester.
2) Specialized attention from FYE Pathway faculty and counselors.
3) Connection with a cohort of students with similar interests and goals.
4) Opportunity to explore your academic and career interests.
5) Faster pathway to transfer!
