The SUNY Buffalo State academic procedures, policies, and guidelines apply to all students and all college sessions. Students are responsible for determining their academic programs and for meeting every degree requirement. Faculty or professional staff who act as advisers are obligated only to assist students in meeting this responsibility. Clarification of any requirements for the baccalaureate degree may be obtained from the academic adviser, department chair, or academic dean. Check with the Academic Standards Office, Twin Rise 100, (716) 878-5222 (https://academicstandards.buffalostate.edu), for clarification of other regulations or procedures.
