EXPLORE. ENGAGE. EXCEL.
First Year College (FYC) is the "college of options" for students entering NC State University. Established in 1995, FYC has developed a nationally-recognized model for successfully advising students through their first year at the university. From personal, one-on-one academic and career advising to our two-semester orientation course and our living-learning community, FYC provides a comprehensive experience for first year students who want to choose the right major and graduate on time.
