First Year Experience (FYE)

First Year Experience

Student FYE Orientation

Sept. 3 and 4 at 9 a.m.

Attendance is required for both sessions

What is FYE?
FYE is designed to prepare students for their academic program and will include presentations and social opportunities. Students will have the opportunity to meet fellow classmates, faculty, staff, and student leaders. If not already completed, students will also have the opportunity to set up student email and student portal, get student ID, finalize financial aid paperwork, and order/pick up textbooks.

What do I need to do before FYE?

  1. Pay your $100.00 deposit in full. Students who do not pay their deposit will not receive a class schedule on their first day of classes until payment is complete.

  2. Complete your registration process. This may be slightly different for each student so be sure to touch base with your Admissions Counselor and Student Financial Services for details. For more information, click here.

    When will I get my schedule and advisor agreement?

    After your deposit is submitted, students are encouraged to come in prior to FYE to meet with the Student Success Staff to register for classes and receive their advisor assignment. Walk-in hours to meet with a success coach will be held Monday through Thursday from 1 p.m. - 3 p.m. You can also set up an appointment by emailing Ashley Mansfield, Director of Student Success at amansfield@bfit.edu. During this meeting, students will also set up their student portal, student email address, order textbooks, and review curriculum and expectations at the college.

    What do I need to do before the first day of classes?

    Make sure everything is complete with Admissions and Student Financial Services.
