Fees

Graduate Student Fee

A mandatory graduate student fee of $42.00 per semester for full-time students and $3.50 per credit hour for part-time students is collected from matriculated students to fund the Graduate Student Association.

College Fee

A mandatory college fee of $12.50 per semester for full-time students and $.85 per credit hour for part-time students is collected by all units of the State University system to finance the operating budget.

Health Fee

All full-time students are required to pay a $157.50 per semester health fee; part-time students pay $13.15 per credit hour per semester. This fee provides basic medical assistance to students on campus through the Weigel Health Center. A mandatory health fee is collected by all units of the State University system.

Waiver for off-site distance-education students

Students enrolled exclusively in off-campus or distance learning courses with no on-campus meetings may be eligible for a waiver or refund of the student health fee (not the mandatory health insurance), provided they are not concurrently enrolled in on-campus courses. If a student is enrolled in both on-campus and off-campus or distance learning courses, the health fee applies to all courses for which the student is registered. Fee waiver is granted for Buffalo State students who meet one of these three conditions:

  • Those who are enrolled in study-abroad
  • Those who reside outside of Erie and Niagara counties and are enrolled exclusively in on-line courses that never meet on campus
  • Those who reside outside of Erie and Niagara counties and are enrolled exclusively in other types of classes that never meet on campus

Fee waivers are not automatic. A student seeking fee waivers must apply for them.

Technology Fee

A mandatory technology fee of $167.50 per semester for full-time students and $14.00 per credit hour for part-time students is collected to provide enhancements to campus technology.

These fees are refunded only when registration is canceled during drop/add period.

Parking Fee

Students who wish to park on campus pay $70 per academic year and $10 for summer-only permits.

The parking fee is refundable within the first two weeks of class upon surrender of the parking permit.
