Graduate Registration Information

Online registration at Fredonia is easy and convenient using Your Connection.  To get started, click on the link for Your Connection, which will open in a new window, and follow these instructions:

  1. Login: Your User ID is your Fredonia ID number (this ID is an uppercase 'F' followed by 8 numbers).  You should have received notification of your Fredonia ID number in your acceptance letter.
  2. PIN: If you have never logged into Your Connection before, your PIN is your 6-digit birth date in the form of MMDDYY (no dashes).  You will be required to change your PIN the first time you log in and will be asked to provide a question and answer that will be used to reset your PIN if you forget it in the future.  Your PIN is a case-sensitive, 6-digit number/letter combination that will be your means of gaining access to your unofficial transcript, final grades, and many other areas of your Fredonia record.   If you have attended Fredonia in the past, you must continue the use of your previous PIN. 
  3. Registering for classes: Once you are in the secured area, click on "Student Services, Financial Aid, Residence Life," and then "Registration." You can then search for and add classes by clicking on the "Fast Class Search" or "Add or Drop Classes" menu items.  You can add or remove classes from your registration worksheet at any time during the online registration period.


Troubleshooting Login Problems

Forgotten PIN: If you forget your PIN, simply type in your User ID (Fredonia ID) and click on the "Forgot PIN?" button.  Your security question will be displayed and your PIN will be reset once you answer correctly.

Unable to log in: If you attempt to login and are unsuccessful for three tries, you will be locked out of your account.  You must contact the Registrar's Office (716-673-3171) to have your PIN reset.


Troubleshooting Registration Problems

Time ticket error: You have not been enabled to register in the current semester.  Please contact the Graduate Studies Office (716-673-3808) for more information.

Prerequisites: You will be unable to register for courses for which there is a prerequisite if you have not completed the prerequisite.  Contact your department chairperson with any questions.

Major-restricted courses: You will be unable to register for courses which are restricted to majors only.  This applies especially to non-degree graduate students.  To gain permission to take the course, please contact the department that is offering the class.  If you are given permission to take the course, the department will process an override code that will allow you to register for the course online.

Full classes: If a class has reached its enrollment capacity, you will not be able to register online.  You may email the instructor to ask permission to get into the course.

Help link: If you encounter an error during the registration process, you may click on the "help" link which will open a separate window with an explanation of the various registration error messages.
