All New Students are invited to attend a one-day Jump Start program on campus.  This provides students the opportunity to complete items necessary to be enrolled for the fall semester and prepare for move-in, including:

  • Finalizing their course schedule
  • Navigating online academic tools
  • Processing their 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
  • Meeting other new students


A special, Parent/Guardian Jump Start will also be offered simultaneously at this time.  Parents, family members, and guests accompanying a student who choose not to participate in the parent/guardian program are NOT able to remain with the student throughout the day. Students have their own itinerary during Jump Start. However, students can register up to two family guests to attend the parent/family program using the online registration request form. Please be aware that there is a fee for parents to attend however, it is NOT mandatory for parents to attend.

Jump Start Days will be offered from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on the following dates.  (For those traveling a great distance, on-campus overnight accommodations for parents and students will be available.)  Online registration requests begin April 15, 2018.  Each registration request is filled on a first-come, first-serve based on your incoming major.  This ensures that each student has time with an academic advisor during the course registration review rotation.
