This program allows all students to be part of the Fredonia experience regardless of academic background. Students who were not previously eligible to attend Fredonia can take course work at JCC and earn a GPA necessary to continue their education at Fredonia. Successful students will receive both an associate’s degree from JCC and a bachelor’s degree from Fredonia.
