First Year Experience Students

FYE Program

Who is it for? 

All students who have been admitted to AUC are required to take part in the First-Year Experience (FYE) program. This includes undergraduate Egyptian and international degree-seeking students and students at the Department of English Language Instruction. 


To help ease new students in their transition from high school to university.


What happens during the four-day program? 

For three days before the start of classes, new students first gather to attend a general assembly where the University president and other administrators welcome them to the AUC. The students are then divided into groups of 20, attending interactive class sessions where they are familiarized with the campus and its services as well as becoming acquainted with one another, after which they regroup for recreational activities.
