|What are the Fee's for Orientation?
During Summer Orientation your Fall 2013 schedule will be finalized with a specially-trained academic advisor. (After June 14th, a tentative schedule will be available for you to preview on Your Connection.) In addition, you will become familiar with the campus, available services, and learning tools to help you succeed in your academic career at SUNY Fredonia. You will also learn about your general education requirements, about exploring for a major if you are looking for one, and about the requirements for your major, if you have already chosen one.
Program registration for transfer students will take place from 8:00 – 8:30 a.m. on Thursday June 20th. Following registration and refreshments, you will hear remarks from our President and be introduced to our Orientation Staff. After a brief review of the day’s schedule, you will participate in an academic session that will include a discussion of general education and your academic experience. You will also have a chance to experience some learning tools that will assist you over the course of your academic career. After a buffet lunch, you will be a part of a small group participating in a series of informational workshops designed to assist you with planning for the fall semester as well as the years ahead. During this time, you will finalize your class schedule for the Fall 2013 Semester.
The transfer orientation fee is $65.00, which includes the program, orientation materials and lunch. There is no Parent Orientation Program scheduled for the transfer session.

If you are unable to make changes once you click the link, call (716) 673-3276 for assistance.

Due to the structured nature of this program, this program is restricted to Transfer Students Only. Please do not bring guests (parents, friends, etc.) to the program.
Orientation reservations cannot be processed until your Admissions/Housing Deposit ($100; or $50 for those who do not require on-campus housing in the fall) is on file with the Office of Student Accounts. The Admission/Housing Deposit should be mailed directly to the Office of Student Accounts (envelope was provided with your Admissions acceptance packet), and not included with the orientation fee. This Admission/Housing Deposit activates you on the University’s computer database and allows you to view your tentative schedule and finalize your Fall 2013 class selection at Orientation.
