First Year Success BannerFirst Year Success Program

The First Year Success Program (FSP) is a mandatory program designed for freshmen who are on academic probation (AP) for the first time

Part of moving forward begins by reflecting on what may have gone astray, but the majority of our efforts will focus on students’ futures and how they can always put their best self forward.

How the First Year Success Program works:

Students who are on Academic Probation for the first time after fall or winter quarter will be enrolled in the First Year Success Program Canvas.


Students should review the Canvas, paying special attention to each step, the deadlines, and FAQs.

The workshop will consist of a large group session, followed by small group breakouts led by their academic coach.

Students will get confirmed information as to the date and time of their workshop to their Cal Poly email.


After attending a workshop, students are required to select a mandatory follow-up assignment.
Option 1: Visit a campus resource & complete a reflection
Option 2: Meet with their FSP academic coach & complete a reflection

Students will receive more information about these options at the workshop.


During week 5 students will complete a mid-quarter survey. Completing this step will remove the hold from the student's account.
