The First Year Program at the University of Nebraska at Kearney is designed to help incoming students transition from high school to college and become engaged members of the UNK academic community. Students participating in the program enroll in the First Year Program Freshman Seminar, a one credit hour class that introduces students to their academic responsibilities at UNK as well as helps foster a sense of community and commitment. Because the class size is limited to twenty-five students and instructors are assisted by Student Peer Leaders, First Year students receive special attention that helps integrate them into academic, extracurricular, and social aspects of the university community.
