2. Review the New Student Enrollment Guide & Checklist 

We have created an interactive New Student Enrollment Guide that will help you and your student complete a series of next steps to finalize their enrollment and registration. This guide provides “how to” like instructions as well as links to campus resources available to answer questions you may have.


Parent & Student Q&A Sessions:

These sessions offer topic-specific information to assist new students and their families to complete enrollment requirements and learn how to have a successful start to their Fredonia journey. Campus Resource Experts will be available to answer questions and provide helpful "how-to" information. We hope you join us for these "lunch hour" open session at 12:00 p.m.
