About UNC Greensboro - New Student Transitions & First Year Experience

New Student Transitions & First Year Experience (NST&FYE) is committed to providing a comprehensive and collaborative approach to ensure the success and retention of our new students.

NST & FYE offers a range of programs and resources for new students delivered through orientation programs, transition courses, shared learning experiences, peer support, and student leadership. Drawing from extensive knowledge about the first year experience, NST & FYE educates the campus community about the unique and evolving needs of our new students and their families in order for all of us to provide optimum support inside and outside the classroom.

NST & FYE ultimately supports new students and their families’ transition to college by encouraging exploration and connections to UNCG’s many people, programs, and resources which provide a solid foundation for academic and personal success, while cultivating a sense of Spartan pride and affinity for UNC Greensboro.
