The Admissions Office makes an effort to identify and recruit students from underrepresented groups, students with talents in the fine arts and athletics, and students who have participated extensively in school and community affairs. Many of these students are admitted to SUNY Fredonia under the Full Opportunity Program.
Once at Fredonia, FOP members can take advantage of academic support services provided through the Learning Center. In addition to drop-in tutoring, FOP students can opt for one-on-one assigned tutoring in a subject. Seats in English Composition (ENGL100), Introduction to Psychology (PSY129) and Freshman Seminar are guaranteed for first semester FOP students. Members also receive weekly electronic newsletters detailing important academic news and deadlines and social and cultural events happening on campus.
Staff members offer help with course selection and registration, mentoring, and advisement to Full Opportunity Program participants.
