Student Arrival and Orientation Information


New Student Resident Info

Residence halls will be open from 9:00 am - 6:00 pm on Thursday, August 20, 2020.

Move-in day is designed to provide you with enough time to move into your residence hall and settle in.  Campus offices will be open to answer any last-minute questions and concerns.


Once an admitted student pays their deposit, there are many important next steps to ensure successful preparation before the semester begins.  Fredonia's NEXT STEP webpage is home to a New Student Checklist and has additional details on how to complete all enrollment requirements.

*In an effort to keep everyone safe and healthy, the Jump Start Enrollment Day program will be a virtual experience throughout the summer.  Students and parents/guardians will receive detailed information by June 1, 2020, on how new students will complete the requirements online.  Students need not register in Your Connection at this time.
