First-Year Learning Communities Program (FYLCP)


The First-Year Learning Communities Program (FYLCP) at TAMU-CC was established in 1994 and enrolls all incoming first-year students in learning communities during their first two semesters of college. Over the past two decades, the FYLCP has been nationally recognized for its commitment to student success and integrative work.

Learning Communities

"It was easy to interact with my peers and was easy to communicate with my Seminar Professor. It was very beneficial to me having this learning community and I feel that if the learning community wasn't here I wouldn't have been successful at all." (Fall 2019 Triad B Student) 

First-Year Seminar

"My Seminar Professor helped me grow immensely. She made the concepts of classes so much easier and she genuinely cares about other students. She makes sure all questions are answered, all the time." (Fall 2019 Triad CS student)
