Jump Start Enrollment Days start in July
Fredonia’s Jump Start Enrollment Program for undergraduate first-year and transfer students will be taking place online in July.
A letter will be sent home to all new students and families the week of June 7 with details about the Jump Start Program and the next steps for finalizing enrollment.
Director of New Student and Transition Programs Erin Mroczka notes that Jump Start is a critical experience for new students. Students who participate in Jump Start indicate that the program helps them better understand their academic goals and feel more prepared to start their first semester at Fredonia. She added that it provides students the opportunity to practice using campus tools and begin to make important connections with faculty, staff and fellow students.
All incoming students will receive information via email in the coming weeks on how to complete the Jump Start program and receive academic advisement and course registration. Students do not need to pre-register for the program.
Jump Start is a required first step of orientation that enables students to complete the items necessary to be enrolled in the fall semester:
- Finalizing a course schedule
- Navigating online academic tools
- Processing a Fredonia ID card
- Submitting immunization records
- Accepting a meal plan (if living on campus)
- Registering a vehicle
- Connecting with campus support offices
- Completing financial aid requirements
