First Year Experience

Flagler College's first year experience program helps you as a new student transition into our campus community. A community that is uniquely situated in the nation's oldest city and is dedicated to your academic success and development.

Your First Year Experience

Your experience is important to us, from the moment you receive your letter of admittance to the day you graduate from college and explore the next chapter in your life. Your Flagler College experience starts with your first year on campus. This program is designed for all new students- freshmen, transfer, and international.

Director of First Year Experience, Jill Dawson.
