Hello, New Students!
The Office of First-Year and Transition (FYT) engages and assists new students in developing a foundation of best practices and
accountability for their academic and personal success at Fredonia. We seek to connect first-year
and transfer students to resources, tools, and information that promote positive social behaviors and academic
confidence. This office communicates directly with new students, parents, and the
campus community via email and social media about support services, special events,
campus policies, and university traditions.
Please contact Erin Mroczka, Director of FY&T Programs at (716)673-3271.
PRIORITY REGISTRATION FOR TRANSFERS
NO NEED TO WAIT FOR CLASSES!
Priority registration essentially moves new Transfer students to the front
of the line and allows you to select classes alongside currently enrolled
students during the spring semester. Participating is very simple and
the benefits are huge! There are three things you need to do:
1.)Pay your deposit by March 31, 2016
2.)Complete the Course Scheduling Survey online in Your Connection
3.)Register for Summer Orientation after April 15, 2016
Once your schedule is built, you will receive a personalized email with
instructions on how to view your schedule and contact a faculty advisor
directly to answer any academic questions you may have. Should you
need to make changes to your schedule, you will be able to do so online
with approval from your faculty contact before May 13, 2016 or
in person during summer orientation on June 20, 2016.
