The Second-Year Experience (SYE) program at Moorpark College is designed to support students in their second year of college or higher with identifying, pursuing, and achieving their educational and career goals.
With guidance from counselors and student success coaches, SYE supports the continued growth of our students through activities and resources focused on career exploration, transfer preparation, and leadership development.
Funded through the Project CHESS grant, SYE supports the shared objective of helping students find success and achieve their degree by engaging in the classroom, feeling academically capable, connecting to peers and the campus community, and focusing on their future careers.
In order to participate in SYE, you must have completed 24 or more transferrable units. If you do not meet this minimum unit requirement or have any other eligibility questions, please contact us at email@example.com.
