Submitting the Application

The State University of New York at Fredonia accepts both the SUNY application and the Common Application. We encourage you to apply online at The fee for applying is $50, but students can submit a fee waiver based on financial need through their school counselor. As a transfer student from a SUNY community college who is graduating with an associate degree, you can have the application fee waived by talking to your advising office on your campus. 

Your application will be reviewed individually by our Admissions Committee, a complete application for first year students consists of a high school transcript, admissions essay, resume, at least 1 letter of recommendation, and standardized test scores (SAT or ACT for domestic students). Transfer students will need to submit their college transcript and proof of high school graduation, we encourage an essay and resume but is not required. Students can send in all supporting materials directly to the Office of Admissions, Fenner House, 178 Central Avenue, Fredonia, N.Y. 14063. 

While there is no stated application deadline, we recommend that you submit your request for admission as soon as possible, as there are a limited number of openings in some academic programs. Consider November 1 for the spring semester and March 1 for the fall semester as recommended deadlines.
