First Year Experience (FYE) Student Advisory Council

2022-2023 FYE Student Advisory Council

The FYE Student Advisory Council is an undergraduate student council charged with providing input and feedback regarding transitional and academic support programs for first-year undergraduate students. The council will discuss programs provided to first-year undergraduate students that are supported by the New Student Enrollment & Orientation Fee (NSEOF) and decide if the proposed rate increases are justified. These programs include Academic Support Programs (CLUE/Tutor-Mentor Program), Advising (UAA and OMA&D), Advising & Orientation, Dawg Daze, First-year Interest Groups, Commuter & Transfer Commons, and New Husky Communications. The council will also discuss transitional issues first-year students face as they join the University of Washington community. Questions? Please contactfyesac@uw.edu

The Council will meet seven times throughout Winter and Spring quarters on Zoom, Thursdays, 4:30-5:45 PM. The meeting dates are as follows:

  • January 19th, 2023
  • February 2nd, 2023
