Admission to All Education Programs

Freshman entry into a Buffalo State educator preparation program requires a minimum high school average of 85 percent, which is considered equivalent to a collegiate GPA of 3.0. Transfer students applying to educator preparation programs must demonstrate a minimum 3.0 GPA either in the last semester of full-time study or as a cumulative average from multiple colleges, whichever  best represents ability. Candidates applying to educator preparation programs must submit their SAT or ACT scores at the time of admission to the college. Prospective candidates who do not yet demonstrate a 3.0 GPA and/or high school average of 85 percent or higher should consult academic advisers in the specific educator preparation programs of choice for suggested pathways to achieve successful candidacy.
