The mission of First Year Experience (FYE) is to provide quality programming, support services, and resources to facilitate a seamless transition for first-year students. Through specifically-designed events and communication, FYE promotes student development, persistence, and academic success.
The First Year Experience Office plans and coordinates campus and online mandatory New Student Orientation (NSO) before each Fall, Spring, and Summer term. The purpose of NSO is to foster student success, establish social and academic connections, introduce college resources, and engage students in the San Jacinto College culture in a fun, supportive environment. New Student Orientation sessions include an opportunity for incoming students to ask questions, tour the campus, and meet faculty, staff, and students. Students are required to register for New Student Orientation through SOS prior to attending a session. Limited space is available at each session.
