First-Year Academy

First-Year Academy (FYA) is the official academic kick-off to the fall semester at West Virginia University. FYA is held during Welcome Week and features various events to help you get ready for an amazing year.

FYA is held prior to the start of classes each fall and complements the New Student Orientation experience most students experienced during the summer.

FYA will connect you to the campus, your academic departments and your fellow classmates. You'll learn about the culture and values of West Virginia University, and gain some onsite knowledge of the campus and its resources.

FYA dates for 2016-2017 will be coming soon!
