First Year Aggie Connections - Transition Courses

First Year Aggie Connections (FYAC) are a great way to meet new transfer and reentry students while learning how the university works. Through the FYAC program, the TRC offers two transition courses that introduce students to campus resources and provides the opportunity to connect with other students in a small cohort experience. Learn more about other FYAC connections that you can join.

You Are Not Alone: A Supportive Community for Students with Children and Reentry Students

2-unit pass/no pass transition course

It may feel like you’re the only older student or student parent in your classes, but you are not alone – there are over 1,500 students with children and reentry students at UC Davis. This seminar is designed to apply your strengths and wealth of past experience to success at the university, and to form connections with other students.

Don’t Be THAT Transfer Student

2-unit pass/no pass transition course

This course is for students who want to maximize their time while at UC Davis, develop success strategies to achieve educational and career goals, and avoid being THAT transfer student who spends valuable time letting life happen to them instead of owning their education and future. Through lecture, discussion, and group activities, students will develop skills to help ease the transition to UC Davis.
