The First-Year Experience Seminar or FYE 010 as it is known on campus, is part of the New Student Orientation program that all first-year students participate in. The seminar lasts 14 weeks and is a one-credit course. The sessions focus on integrity with information and discussion regarding decision-making on a cross section of topics that apply to campus life. The topics include campus services, social issues, leadership, spirituality, career planning, research & technology, and service. All first-year students who begin their undergraduate experience at King's are required to complete the seminar to be eligible for graduation from the College. Attendance and active participation in all FYE sessions is required to pass the seminar.

The First-Year Seminar is coordinated by a student affairs professional and a member of the King's faculty in conjunction with administrative staff and student leaders.
