The First Year Summer Experience (FYSE) program is a three-week residential summer orientation program focused on the development and strengthening of math-intensive engineering problem-solving skills. Recruitment and selection of participants is targeted toward inclusion of women, underrepresented racial/ethnic minorities, first-generation college students, engineering admits with weak mathematics preparation, and students interested in engineering but who were not admitted. From 2012 to 2017, there have been 238 FYSE participants, including 107 students majoring in engineering and 131 students in the Letters & Sciences division. This paper will explore a work in progress in understanding participants’ longitudinal progress to transfer into engineering majors and degree completion. This discussion will be supplemented with survey and focus group data to explore the extent to which students were supported by the components of the FYSE program.
