Welcome to First Year Experience and Retention Initiatives!

Students on Bench

First Year Experience and Retention Initiatives (FYE) is an area of the Division of Student Life committed to supporting the academic and social transition of first-year students to The University of Alabama. We define first-year students as any undergraduate student attending UA for the first time. FYE seeks to help students understand expectations associated with being a member of the Capstone and educate first-year students about various support services on campus. FYE provides support, resources, and programs for freshman and transfer students as they build the foundation of their Capstone experience.
