Your $100 deposit reserves your space in your class and a spot in the Residence Halls. Students not living on campus may pay only the $50 Academic/Admissions Deposit.
The Financial Aid Office will notify you of your aid eligibility by means of a Financial Aid Award Letter. This will be sent to you after you have been accepted by the Admissions Office and after we receive the results from your FAFSA. You will need to add Fredonia (School Code: 002844) to your FAFSA form to receive Financial Aid. You will also need to change your TAP school code to Fredonia (0915). Please follow the instructions on the back of the Award Letter to accept/decline your aid and complete the necessary loan requirements such as the e-MPN and Entrance Counseling. Additionally, please be sure to complete any other requirements such as Financial Aid Verification that you are notified about as soon as possible. Questions regarding this process can be directed to the Office of Financial Aid at 716-673-3253.

It is imperative that you send your final college transcripts to Fredonia. Without this information, we won't have your most up-to-date transferable credit on file. Transfer students should request that transcripts from their current college be sent to the Registrar's Office at Fredonia.
To simplify the registration process, your first-semester schedule is built for you based on the college credit you have accumulated. Once your deposit is submitted, the process of building your schedule will begin. To view your schedule, log-in to "Your Connection" and click "View Student Schedule."
Changes to this schedule will be made during an Academic Advising session. Students will receive an email when they are eligible to meet with an advisor.
Upon receiving your housing deposit (see above), the Office of Residence Life will send you instructions on completing the Housing License and Application. You may indicate your preference for residence hall placement, including suite or corridor style, or roommate request.
For more information about housing, please visit the Office of Residence Life webpage.
After placing your deposit, you will need to complete and mail a copy of your immunization records to:
