Where do I go to register for it? Can I declare 2 minors at the same time or do I have to wait a semester between declaring them? I am in good academic standing.


You can go to the department that you would like to have your minor(s) in and fill out the " Change or Commit Form for Major, Minor, Second Major, Dual Degree" to declare a minor. You can have two minors at the same time and you do not need to wait a semester. As long as you have a major already declared and have a minimum GPA of a 2.00 within your major, you can declare a minor as well.

What is the policy for Grad Students using Angel? Are they allowed to use it to push their own agendas? I have been getting Angel mail from another grad student that are pushing a personal political agenda. This person is not known to me and not on any of my class rosters. He is simply bombing the entire grad school with his messages. Is this approved? Or something that everyone one in the grad school is allowed to do?
Is there a published policy on this?


That is a question best answered by Angel:

Can i graduate if i have three grades of C- but an overall Gpa of 2.92?


Yes and No: You need a minimum of 2.00 GPA to graduate. Some departments require a "C" in all major course work. So you may want to talk to an advisor within your department to see if your "C-" for your classes would be accepted.

A bursar hold is put on your account anytime you owe money to the school. This could mean anything from not paying tuition in full, owing money for a parking ticket, a library fee, or any other fee you may owe Buffalo State. I am unaware if this is the reason why you cannot access your audit sheet. It very well may be the reason. It is common for students to have restricted access to certain online services when there is a hold on their account.

You cannot petition for a class to fulfill a requirement. When registering for classes from now on, make sure to check the Intellectual Foundations Program course listings, which can be found here: http://www.buffalostate.edu/intellectualfoundations/x537.xml

Any time you are not sure as to whether you can appeal a college rule, you can refer to the section on petitions on the academic standard's website: http://www.buffalostate.edu/academicstandards/x460.xml

"I'm a 4th year student here at Buff State. I am majoring in Electrical Engineering Technology and minoring in Computer Information Systems. I was wondering if I am allowed to declare a double major for the two of them."


I'm not quite sure what you mean by double major. Here at Buff State there are two options.

The first option is called second major, single degree. This means you fulfill requirements for two majors, choosing one as the primary major. You would fulfill all requirements for the primary major (required and electives) and only the required courses for the second major. If you choose to do that your official transcript will indicate you completed a baccalaureate degree in one major with the fulfillment of requirements of a second major. For further explanitation on this you can look at the academic affairs website: http://www.buffalostate.edu/academicaffairs/x547.xml.

The other option is called dual degrees. This means you would complete coursework(required and electives) for two different majors and be awarded two degrees. This option usually takes another year of school to complete. For further information on this you can look at the academic affairs website: http://www.buffalostate.edu/academicaffairs/x544.xml

You can do either one of these. It's up to you exactly what you want.

LINK, ACADEMIC AFFAIRS: ACADEMIC MINORS

An academic minor at SUCB is an optional program of study available to undergraduate students
and may not be required for graduation from any degree program. A minor may be used to complement the
major course of study, broaden and enhance career opportunities, gain expertise in an area of
interdisciplinary studies, or provide in-depth study in a subject of special interest. The minors available at
Buffalo State College are specially conceived and carefully structured sequences of courses designed to
fulfill these general goals. A minor will be officially recorded on the transcript when a student has satisfied all
requirements for the minor and has attained a 2.0 grade point average in the courses approved for the minor.

DECLARING AN ACADEMIC MAJOR
ACADEMIC AFFAIRS: ACADEMIC POLICIES
Declaring an Academic Major
All students who start as freshmen at the college must declare a major before completing 45 credit hours. It is strongly recommended that new freshmen declare a major upon completing 30 credit hours. Transfer students who have completed more than 30 credit hours must declare a major at the time of application for admission. Before declaring a major, students should seek the advice of the chair of the department or division responsible for the major. A Change of Major form, available from the chair, must then be completed and sent to the Registrar's Office.

Some academic programs have special requirements that the student must meet before being admitted as a major. For example, fine arts candidates must submit a portfolio of representative work. The department chair or program coordinator can provide information on specific requirements.

2007-2009 COLLEGE CATALOG Academic Policies: Basic Writing Requirement (see page 5)

COLLEGE WRITING PROGRAM:COLLEGE POLICIES
CWP 101, and CWP 102 will be graded on an "A" through-"E" basis.
"A" through "D" are officially passing grades; however, courses with a prerequisite of CWP 101 or CWP 102 require a C or higher in the class.
This means that a student cannot enroll in CWP 102 until he/she has earned at least a C in CWP 101. Course challenges will not be permitted.
Satisfactory completion of CWP 102 (C or higher) is a prerequisite for all courses used in fulfillment of the Writing Across the Cirriculum Requirement (Writing Intensive).

Students who are considering taking a composition course at another institution that they expect will fulfill the Buffalo State basic writing requirement must seek prior permission from the College Writing Program director.
