First-Year Program (FYP)
The First-Year Program is a year-long orientation program for new undergraduate students designed to:
- Facilitate the transition from high school to college life
- Prepare students for AUC's educational opportunities and student responsibilities
- Integrate new students into the intellectual, cultural, and social life on campus
The FYP orientation is mandatory for all first-year and transfer students. For those students who are unable to attend, AUC makes alternative arrangements that need to be fulfilled within the first six weeks of the semester.

1. Who are Peer Leaders?
Peer leaders are a group of trained students who play an integral role in the first-year experience at AUC. They are a dynamic team that works under the supervision of the office of Vice President for Student Life. Their main role is to guide, advise, and support new students to help them have a successful transition from high school into collegial life. Peer Leaders will not only be present during times of orientation but also throughout the rest of the year.
2. If I missed the orientation, could I attend it at a later time (e.g. another semester)?
No, you are allowed to attend the orientation only during the semester of your admission.
3. What happens if I miss one of the FYP sessions?
If first-year students missed one session or more sessions, a quiz will be administered through the blackboard account that should be passed with a score of 70% or more.
4. What happens if I do not pass the quiz?
Students who do not pass the quiz will be charged EGP 1500 on their student account, which may result in a financial hold. This process will be repeated every semester until they pass the quiz.
