Waiver for Off-Site Distance-Education Students

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), athletic fee and transportation fee 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 fees apply to all courses for which the student is registered. Broad-based fee waivers are granted on a per-semester basis for Buffalo State students who meet one of these three conditions:

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

Summer session is deemed one semester for consideration of broad-based fee waivers. Fee waivers are not automatic. Student seeking fee waivers must apply for them.
