Transfer Admission

Fredonia considers all requests for admission from transfer students in good standing at both two-and four-year colleges and universities, including SUNY and non-SUNY institutions. The admission review process focuses upon an evaluation of academic achievement, program of study, and the major program of study that you request. There are special audition requirements for music and B.F.A. theatre programs, as well as portfolio requirements for the Department of Visual Arts and New Media.

Admission to most of our certification programs in teacher education requires at least a 3.0 grade point average to be eligible for consideration. Admission to the Communication Disorders and Sciences Program requires a 3.0. The Communication Department requires a 2.75 for admission. The Mathematics Education program requires an overall grade point average of 2.5 with at least a C+ grade in any mathematics courses at the level of calculus or above.

We require an official transcript from each college you previously attended, and a high school transcript and SAT or ACT results if you have completed less than 30 credit hours when you apply. If you have been out of high school for more than two years, SAT or ACT scores are not required. All transfers students must submit an official final high school transcript for verification purposes, unless they graduate with an AA or an AS degree.
