Welcome to NCCC and the First Year Experience program! The FYE program is designed to offer support, resources, and referrals for all students who have currently earned less than 25 credits. Each new student will be assigned their own Success Coach based on their major. Your success coach will provide you with the tools needed to navigate your college experience successfully.

What can you expect from your Success Coach and the FYE Team?

  • Helping you find answers for any questions or concerns you may have
  • Preparing you for advisement
  • Making sure you’re in the right major
  • Completing your academic plan
  • Assistance with Work/Life/School Balance
  • Study skills
  • Time Management
  • Stress Management
  • Financial Aid Assistance
  • Community Resources
  • And much, much more!

We look forward to meeting with you to discuss your educational and career goals and how the first Year Experience Program can best assist you during your time at NCCC!

You don’t have to wait to talk to us! Just find your major below and you will see who your Success Coach is and give them a call!
