FYE Passport

The First Year Experience program is designed to make sure you get the most out of your time here at Brookdale. Your FYE Passport is your gateway to a dynamic first year college experience! We have found that when you participate in out-of-classroom activities, you increase your chances for student success.

Because of the large number of events that Brookdale holds every semester, we have grouped them into three main categories, designed for you:

(CM) CAREER and MAJOR EXPLORATION These events will assist you in exploring different college majors and academic fields, as well as in recognizing and pursuing your career goals.

(A) ACADEMIC EVENTS Expand learning outside of the classroom by participating in co-curricular activities, sharpen your college skills and abilities, and broaden your knowledge of academic resources available on campus.

(SC) SOCIAL and COMMUNITY EVENTS Become engaged in your campus community, meet new people, help others, and have fun along the way! 

Bring your FYE Passport with you to at least one event from each of the listed categories to get an authorized signature showing your attendance. Remember, before the end of your first semester, you need to meet with your Academic Advisor to review your progress and plan for your next semester at Brookdale!

If your class is participating in FYE, just hand in your completed Passport before the end of the term to your instructor. If your class is not participating, drop your Passport off at one of the collection areas around the Lincroft campus and regional locations. All completed passports submitted will be entered into a drawing for great prizes!
