Dear Sir, I have 50 credits right now and will transfer to Buffalo State this fall. Are sophomore allowed to live off campus and rent a room somewhere else? Would you please tell me, is it mandatory to pick a meal plan? mad.gif

Below is policy information from Residence Life's website:

Buffalo State On‐Campus Housing Residency Requirement
All full‐time freshmen and sophomore students whose permanent residency is beyond a 35 mile radius of
Buffalo State are required to reside on campus FOR 4 CONSECUTIVE SEMESTERS OR YOU EARN 60 CREDITS,
whichever comes first. Those exempt from this requirement include married students, single parents, transfer
students, veterans, and students over the age of 21, students residing with relatives (i.e. aunts, uncles,
brothers, sisters, etc.). Documentation will be needed to achieve exemption status under any of these
circumstances.
Students who feel that they have legitimate reasons for requesting off‐campus residency can apply for an
exemption through the Residence Life Office located in Porter Hall (716-878-3000).

Can you use your financial aid to cover the tuition deposit?

No, you cannot use your financial aid for your tuition deposit. For more information on your tuition deposits, call our office at 716-878-4017.

This did not help whatsoever. Wherever I look, it's telling me I cannot register for classes until August 21st. That doesn't make sense.

As a first year student, your class schedule is made for you by University College. University College is signaled to create a schedule for you when you register for Orientation. I hope by now you have done that. If not, visit the Orientation website to register.

Same is happening to me and I'm a transfer student. Do transfer students have to wait to register for classes too?


No, transfer students can register as soon as their deposit and health information is in. You can always speak with an academic advisor (from your department) to go over the schedule you made, but make a schedule as soon as you can.

I was accepted for the Spring but then decided to defer my admission to the Fall because of financial problems. Now I would like to defer my admission again to the spring 2014. I'm sure if I'm able to do this, it will be the final time because I recently got a job and I'm saving to be able to afford to rent a room near the school.

Can you defer an admission twice?


You can defer admission for up to a year. So yes in your case you can because it is within a year's time. Just send an email to admissions@buffalostate.edu and be sure to include your written request for deferring, along with your full name and birthdate.

Last year, fall 2012, I took a leave of absence during my first semester of my freshman year. I'm ready to come back but I'm not sure what I need to do to accomplish that or who I need to speak with. Do I need to re-apply or is there just a form to fill out now that my leave is ended?

I would recommend contacting our office directly at 716-878-4017 for an update on your status.

I was accepted for the Spring 2013 semester but decided to defer my admission for the Fall 2013. During this semester I was able to raise my GPA from a 2.4 to a 2.6? Am I allowed to change my major to business administration now? I already have 43 credits

You have to send a written request to be reconsidered for the business program. You will also need to include that you have additional coursework in the note. Be sure to include your full name and date of birth. You can send this request to our email: admissions@buffalostate.edu.

Also be sure to have your official transcript sent from the Registrar's Office of the school you attended.

How do I update my current mailing address? I have not been getting letters from Buff State and I think that's because my mailing address has changed.

If you are a current student at Buffalo State you need to put the request in writing to the Registrar's Office. If you are a new student, you can send an email to the Admissions Office at admissions@buffalostate.edu. In the email make sure you include your full name, Banner ID and your new address.

I am clueless on how I am supposed to register for classes for my first year and, let alone, what I have to take. Will someone inform me?

Congratulations on your acceptance! I would recommend reviewing your acceptance packet that you received in the mail along with your acceptance letter. It provides important information on your next steps with a checklist inside the first page of the booklet.

Another good tool is the Accepted Students website referenced in your acceptance packet. It also goes through your next steps as well, all mentioned in your acceptance packet.

I am Fall 2013 freshmen, received acceptance packet with residence hall and meal plan application form 2012-2013
Just filled it out, but don't know how and when to pay for them, I need to write a cheque with full amount and mail it together with the form? Or just mail the form first and they will require me to pay for it later on?
Please help!
Thank You


The form should be completed and sent with the housing deposit to Residence Life. In your acceptance packet there is an envelope addressed to Residence Life. Use this envelope to send in your completed form and deposit.

Typically it does but you didn't provide your name so we could look it up. This is not a secure forum. You're better off contacting the Financial Aid Office or the Admissions Office directly.

Agreed, please contact us directly. Admissions can be reached at 716-878-4017. Thank you!

On the AP equivalency table it says a 4 or 5 on the AP Statistics exam is MAT311 and MAT3XX what does it mean by MAT3XX im a little confused


MAT3XX means a high level elective class. So AP Statistics score of 4 or 5, fulfills MAT311 and a 300 level MAT elective

I will be a freshman in the chemistry ba program next fall. On the intellectual foundations website it says i need to have proficiency in a foreign language at least at the 102 level. On the chemistry ba degree template on the chemistry department website though it says up to the 202 level is needed. I have taken Spanish 3 years during high school and passed the Spanish regents, so will i have to take any Spanish classes at buff state?

It sounds like you shouldn't, however it will be confirmed and waived after we recieve your final hs transcript in the summer.

Hello, I applied for Fall 2013 as a transfer from a local community college. I spoke with Ms. West a couple of times and was under the impression that you have received everything you need from me as far as paperwork goes. I am wondering when transfer acceptance letters are typically sent out. Do I need to send my Fall 2012 grades in order for a decision to be made?

We review applications as they are complete. Fall transfer applications are being reviewed currently. However spring 2013 applications have taken top priority until this week. Unless your fall 2012 grades were specifically requested of you, you do not need them. If you have confirmed we have everything we need, then it's time to wait for a decision. We send our decisions weekly through the mail. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact our office: 716-878-4017.

I just defered my admission and they just sent me an e-mail telling me that my application will be reviewed as if I just applied to the school for the first time and was never accepted :/

Does this mean that I can be REJECTED even if my cumulative GPA doesn't fall below a 2.0? :/

Or does it mean that I have a spot reserved for the fall? smile.gif


We routinely review each application for each semester. As long as nothing changes, you should be fine.

I'm aware that most of my credits will theoretically transfer, but I have been told by several of my professors that only some of my classes will actually count towards buff states criminal justice program. i am currently in a situation where all i need is a few electives to graduate and i just want to make sure that i'm not taking these classes for no reason. Who would i talk to in order to figure this out?

We do not complete an official credit evaluation until after you have applied and been accepted. If you have yet to apply, you can use our TABS program located on our Admissions webpage to get an idea of what will transfer.

If I cannot afford the application fee is there a way to get a waiver for it?

An application fee waiver can be obtained by sending in a fee waiver form signed by your school counselor. There are 3 forms that can are accepted, one from the College Board, the NACAC and the SUNY Fee Waiver Form. Please print one of the linked forms and have your school counselor sign off on it. (The College Board application fee waiver forms would have been sent to you by the College Board if you registered with a fee waiver for the SAT.)

 If you used the Common Application, mail or fax the waiver to Buffalo State Admissions. Students can also have your counselor upload it through the common application. Our mailing address is: Office of Admissions, Moot Hall 110, Buffalo State College, 1300 Elmwood Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14222 and our fax number: 716-878-6100.

 If you used the SUNY Application, you need to send the waiver form to SUNY Application Services Center by mail or fax. The mailing address is: SUNY Application Servic

I applied for the fall 2012 semester as a freshman at Buffalo state as an EOP student and have gotten denied. I am now attending SUNY Morrisville as an EOP student and i want to apply as a transfer student for Buffalo State fall 2013. My hs GPA was not so good (1.9)... My college GPA however is a 2.84. If i apply has an EOP transfer student, would i receive the same outcome as i did in the fall 2012 application because of my hs transcript or will I be a good candidate because of my college GPA and my combined reading and math sat score(being a 840) while your school is looking for a 830 minimum?

When you apply as a transfer student, you need to have 24+ credit hours for us to not look back at your high school record. If you were denied as a freshman applicant, you also need 24+ college credit hours for us to review your application again. If you choose to apply for the fall, you will need both full time semester grades (fall/spring) before receiving an admissions decision.

I am have recently been accepted to buff state in December because of early decision, however it said at the end of the letter that it might be taken away if my final transcript is different. At the moment I am struggle in my mathematics class and I was wondering if I dropped that class, would my acceptance to buffalo state be disregarded? I'm in trig class and without it I can not get a advanced regents diploma

Due to the changes in your transcript, I would recommend contacting our office directly (716-878-4017) and speak to the counselor that made the decision.

Hi Ryan,
Thank you for your message. Your request is understandable and valid. The Registrar's Office is responsible for managing the class schedules, however each department plans the class schedule from their subject area, including the frequency and time the classes are offered. The Registrar's Office will have the planned class schedules as we get closer to spring registration, but if you are curious as to what classes are slated to be offered, I'd suggest approaching the department who would offer those classes. The area of pre-med is primarily sciences (as you know) but unfortunately is not one of our evening study programs. This means that students in non-evening programs may take a night course if offered every once in a while, but the program in it's entirety isn't completely obtainable at night. In our evening study programs, the courses are sequenced over several semesters so that evening students are able to fit them into their schedules. Courses are also offered on weekends and online. I know it doesn't answer your request, but hopefully it provides some insight?


Also, here's the list of our 12 Evening Programs: business administration; career and technical education; computer information systems; criminal justice; electrical engineering technology, electronics; electrical engineering technology, power and machines; individualized studies; industrial technology; mechanical engineering technology; media production; social work; and urban and regional analysis and planning.
