First-Year Programs offers several seminars designed to help ease your transition from high school to college or from another institution to the University of Tennessee.
- FYS 101: The UT Experience
- FYS 129: Special Topics Seminar
- TRNS 201: Transitioning on Rocky Top
- FYS 401 & 402: Peer Mentor Program
Peer mentors are undergraduate students who assist faculty and staff instructors in a section of FYS 101 for the fall and spring term. These campus leaders serve as role models, mentors, campus resource experts, and trusted points of contact for FYS 101 students.
First-Year Programs coordinates the Volunteer Bridge program which is an invitation-only program for a select group of prospective UT students. Volunteer Bridge students live the UT student life while beginning their academic studies at Pellissippi State Community College.
