A student needing to add a course may do so with Instructor permission.  Simply email the instructor from your Fredonia email account indicating your desire to add their class.  Include the CRN, Subject, Course Number and Section number in your email.

If the instructor approves, you can forward your email to registrar@fredonia.edu.  We will then add you to the course.

If you already have your instructor's permission to add a course, please forward to registrar@fredonia.edu.

You may also add a course by visiting the Registrar’s Office located in Reed library, with a completed Registration Add form.  The instructor's sign the form as well as clearly communicate the permission to add via their Fredonia email.

Tuesday, September 1, is the last day to add a full-semester course.

Beginning Monday, August 31 students may withdraw from a full semester course. Course withdrawals are a permanent part of your academic record, however they are not graded and do not factor into your final GPA for the semester.  The deadline to withdraw from a Fall 2020 course is Friday, November 6. 

A course withdrawal requires the student to communicate with their course instructor and academic advisor regarding their desire to withdraw from a course.

Using the email template below, send the communication from your Fredonia email account to your course instructor and academic advisor.  Once you have had your advisory conversation with both parties and you would still like to withdraw from the course, please ask them to forward your email to registrar@fredonia.edu.  They should indicate that the advisory conversation has taken place and that you would like to withdraw from the indicated course.  Once the Registrar’s Office has both emails, from your course instructor and advisor, we will withdrawal you from the course.

If an undergraduate student is looking to withdraw from all courses for the semester, please vising the Academic Advising web page at https://www.fredonia.edu/academics/academic-advising for details.
