Liberal Arts Students
If a student has not declared a major in a particular discipline, he/she is considered to be a Liberal Arts student. The student will be assigned to an EDP counselor for advisement. Appointments for advisement and assistance in exploring the variety of majors, selecting a major, and understanding college procedures and policies should be set up with the EDP counselor. Once the major has been declared, the student is assigned a faculty advisor, but the EDP counselor is available to help with advising questions or issues throughout the student's time at Fredonia. The college's Academic Advising is also an excellent resource for any Liberal Arts questions. Back to Top
Students with a Declared Major
In addition to the assigned faculty advisor, the EDP counselor will assist in the development of course schedules and the interpretation of college policies and procedures. The student is responsible for maintaining frequent contact with both the EDP counselor and the faculty advisor who work together in monitoring the student's academic progress.
All drops, adds, and course withdrawals must be approved by the EDP counselor to ensure that the student maintains an appropriate course load and does not jeopardize financial aid. Student should meet with their counselor to discuss such schedule changes. The procedure for such changes can be found in the college catalog.
