Alcohol Wise Online Program
Alcohol Wise is an online alcohol education course that is required of all first-year
students (not transfers) at Fredonia. The course takes approximately one hour to
complete. Log-in instructions have been emailed to each student's Fredonia email
account from Julie Bezek (via 3rd Millennium Classrooms). All first-year students
are required to complete the program prior to September 1st, 2015. Failure to complete the program by that date will result in a ‘hold’ being placed
on the student's account until such time that the Alcohol Wise program is completed.
A hold will prevent you from checking your midterm and final grades, as well as preventing
you from registering for Spring 2016 classes. Please direct questions or concern
to Julie Bezek at Student Counseling Services - Julie.Bezek@fredonia.edu or 716-673-3424.

Fredonia does not currently require students to have health insurance. It is strongly
advised that insurance be maintained on all students to cover outside medical care
and emergencies. Students should bring an insurance card to school with them. Many
insurance plans limit services to your home area or require diagnostic tests and prescriptions
to be ordered by your primary doctor. It is very important to know how your insurance
works and if referrals are needed.
Information Technology Services (ITS)
A student accident and health insurance program is not available through the University.
If you do not currently carry health insurance, we strongly encourage you to consider
the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). However, all International
students MUST carry health insurance, please contact the International Education Center
(716) 673-3451 for more information.
