First Year Programs (FYP)

The Office of  First Year Programs works to integrate all new first year students into the life of the university and effect a smooth  transition from high school to university life by helping them to discover and explore the many services, departments and opportunities available to them at Pace.

First Year Programs:

  • Ensures a successful transition to college for all incoming students
  • Connects first year students to University life through the University 101, a one credit course common to all new first year students
  • Sponsors “The Quest for the Cup,” “Gotham Quest,” and other programming activities to help students become part of the larger university community
  • Coordinates “academic alerts” to advise students about their academic performance  and connect them to any needed  University support services
  • Through CFAP (Comprehensive Freshman Advising Program), provide students with their first year advisor and support their transition to major/school based advising in the sophomore year
