First Year College (FYC) offers students personal and academic support

North Carolina State University established FYC in 1995 for students who have not decided on a major. FYC students benefit from a variety of additional support, including:

  • One-on-one academic and career advising
  • A unique course (Introduction to University Education) focusing on transition into college life, academics, self-discovery and career/major exploration, in addition to typical college freshman courses
  • First Year College Village, a living and learning community for FYC students that supports academic, personal and social development in a safe and welcoming environment
