Study Abroad and Student Exchange

Welcome to Fredonia

Study Abroad


Fredonia's study abroad offers a number of programs for SUNY and non-SUNY students, from first year to graduate level. Usually, undergraduates study abroad during their junior year, but seniors, well-prepared sophomores and occasionally freshman are eligible.  Study abroad is not for just language study anymore; students can take major coursework, minor coursework, upper-division electives, and CCC requirements while abroad.
