After orientation, each freshman student of BracU is assigned to FYAT Group led by Faculty Adviser. The advisor teams up with a peer mentor who is a senior student of the university to inform and support new students, monitor academic performance and guide academic planning during the first year. The Academic Advisers thus seek to complement the existing structure of departmental advising and registration by providing guidance in general areas of academic and campus life at BracU. Each FYAT team includes 20-25 new students. They meet their Adviser for at least 2 individual advising sessions during first semester before mid-term and final where advisers assess student needs and challenges and refer to appropriate services, also assess their transition in academic progress. In the next two semesters they have same meetings with FYAT team.
