First Year Experience

At UC Merced, we place special emphasis on each student's first year. We believe that the foundation built during the first year is the key to a student's continued success. Once you're admitted, First Year Experience (FYE) picks up where Admissions leaves off.

We understand that parents and families play an integral role in how successful the first year student becomes here at UC Merced. We would like to keep you informed as well; please visit the Parents/ Families page for all the information you may need.
