Fredonia awards degrees four times each year.  Spring (May), Fall (December), Summer (August), and J-Term (January).

A student who expects to earn a degree for a given term or session must submit the Application for Degree form at the Registrar's Office by the established deadline.  An Application for Degree must be filed for each of the student's declared Major and Minor program/s.
