At Missouri Western Everything is Possible
Welcome to the First Year Experience (FYE) at Missouri Western State University! We are very excited that you are here and look forward to spending this time with you. The FYE office is designed to help students prepare for college and to assist family members in understanding their student’s transition. We have created a student success sequence to help students feel comfortable on our campus. Click below to get started:
New Student Registration:
In June and July you will get your class schedule at a New Student Registration program. There will also be sessions for students and families to discuss financial aid and residential life, and you will be able to speak with a faculty member from your intended academic area.
Griffon Edge Orientation:
In August, you will attend a three-day orientation program called Griffon Edge. This program occurs the week before classes begin. You will receive a credit hour upon completion. Over 900 incoming students enroll in this class to serve as the first step in their journey toward becoming a Griffon!
UNV101: Freshman Seminar:
This course will introduce you to critical thinking, reading, writing, academic and personal skills vital for success in college. Students will also learn about campus resources and policies, and explore career options. To learn more, ask your registration leader or advisor.
