Pathway to Accelerated College Admissions

What is the Early College Admissions Program (3-1-3)?

3-1-3 is an early enrollment program at SUNY Fredonia. It provides regional high school seniors with a very robust personal and academic experience in preparation college.

3-1-3 is like an academic study abroad experience without leaving home. It provides you the opportunity to tryout what it’s like to live and learn as a college student. Enjoy exposure to clubs, activities, and events. Engage in services and resources that all Fredonia students have access to while receiving college credit, such as the gym facilities, radio and TV stations, natatorium, tutoring, and the library.

"It seems like every year of middle and high school have been the same thing, and I really want a change. As much as I love my friends, I am eager to see new faces and meet new people. 3-1-3 has been something I’ve been looking forward to since my freshman year of high school. I think it will be a great opportunity to gain college experience and help me with the transition out of high school."
