Good Neighbor

Discover a nurturing, inclusive environment that supports your individual passions and path in a setting that is now more affordable than the largest public institutions in Ohio and Pennsylvania!

Residents of Pennsylvania and Ohio are eligible for a $6,000 Good Neighbor Award (equally distributed $3,000 each semester) from Fredonia to reduce their out-of-state tuition.  This award is for all Pennsylvania and Ohio residents or those who attend their last two years of High School in PA or OH; and who do not qualify for in-state tuition in New York. This award is renewable for all four years at Fredonia to increase the affordability of a college education. 

Previously, Fredonia's annual out of state tuition was $16,980. With the $6,000 Good Neighbor Award, the annual out of state tuition at Fredonia is now $10,980. That means Fredonia's annual tuition is more affordable than most public institutions in both Ohio and Pennsylvania!

Not only is Fredonia more affordable, it's also closer than you think! We're just a short drive along Interstate 90!
