Students at Fredonia bear full responsibility in familiarizing themselves with all
the graduation requirements in effect at the time they were admitted to the university.
However, the Business Administration department has always taken the academic advising
of its students seriously. Our objective is to help each student take courses that
are relevant to his/her major and career goals while completing the graduation requirements
in a timely fashion. To that end, as soon as a student is admitted to one of our programs,
he/she is assigned a full-time faculty member as his/her Academic Advisor. Our belief
is that through mutual communication between the advisor and the advisee on a periodic
basis, this objective will be achieved.
