First Year Programs

Dedicated to helping students achieve their academic goals, the First Year Programs (FYP) team consists of highly qualified academic advisors, student ambassadors, peer mentors, and tutors who work together with faculty and staff campus-wide to assist students in their transition to university life.

First Year Programs, conveniently located on campus in the College of Business, Suite 115, focuses on the academic success of first-year students through developmental and intentional academic advisement.  First Year Programs coordinates and provides academic counseling, grade monitoring, academic intervention strategies, and tutoring, and acts as a liaison for students seeking appropriate sources of information and specialized services on campus.  First Year Programs oversees the college success course (UNIV 101) for the campus and coordinates with the Living-Learning Program in the residence halls.

FYP oversees the First Generation Student Program and the First Class Program.  The First Generation Student Program is designed to help students who are among the first generation in their families (to attend a university) to succeed.  The First Class Program is designed to give selected first year students a head start in their university experience during the Summer B semester.

Student Employment

The Student Employment Office provides assistance to students seeking part-time employment on or off campus. On-campus employment is available to students regardless of financial need. Working on or off campus not only gives students more financial support, but also helps them develop self-confidence, gain valuable employment and credit references, establish a work record, and acquire useful skills in time management, financial planning, and communication. Once students are registered at the Daytona Beach Campus they may seek employment by visiting our office or by viewing all available positions via our online system. Once students are offered employment on campus, they must provide ORIGINAL documentation for proof of identity and employment eligibility.

Because students work and serve each other at Embry-Riddle, a sense of community is created. Students are participants in the life and work of the University as well as consumers of the educational program. Embry-Riddle depends on student workers for much of the work essential to sustain day-to-day operations.

Embry-Riddle adheres to the principle of equal employment opportunities for all students.
