First-Year Programs (FYP) is devoted to ensuring a smooth transition and a successful experience for all students in their first year at the University of Tennessee (UT). The goal of FYP is to help students transition—personally, socially, and academically—to life at UT. Effectively making these transitions in the first year is crucial to success at UT, graduation, and future achievement.
