Admissions Information

Admission to SUNY Fredonia is competitive. Mean scores for the class of 2012 are a cumulative high school average of 89%, 1090 SAT score (critical reading and math sections combined), and a 24 ACT composite score. The above scores are averages; we encourage applications from students who have taken a strong college-preparatory program in high school and rank in the top half of their high school class.

We do consider other applicants based on special talents such as fine and performing arts, athletics, leadership, etc., and our Educational Opportunity Program considers students who are academically and financially disadvantaged.

 


Early Decision

Please Note: The Early Decision application deadline has been extended to November 15th. 

SUNY Fredonia participates in Early Decision (not Early Action). Early Decision is a binding agreement. Should a student be admitted through Early Decision, they are asked to withdraw all other college applications. 

The Early Decision application deadline is November 1st. Students accepted through Early Decision will have a deposit deadline of January 15th. 

 


Freshmen Requirements

SUNY Fredonia participates in a rolling admissions process. Most students find they have applied by the Thanksgiving holiday. Decisions are made on a rolling basis until all spots in all programs are filled. Students seeking traditional admission (not early decision) are required to submit a deposit by May 1st to hold their spot in our fall class.

Successful freshman candidates complete at least 16 college preparatory courses (which in New York State equals regents coursework) during high school, including 3 or 4 years each of science, math and foreign language, and rank in the upper half of their graduating class. You are also required to submit an essay and at least one letter of recommendation.  Home-schooled students have additional requirements

You must take the SAT or the ACT in order to be considered for admission. SUNY Fredonia recommends - but does not require - that high school students take the writing section on whichever exam they choose to take. Writing scores will not factor into the admissions decision process.
