Departments frequently offer creative or unique courses in the summer, including online courses. Summer Session is an opportunity for matriculated Buffalo State students, nonmatriculated students, and students at other colleges home on summer break to catch up on coursework to graduate on time, catch up on electives, fulfill final credits, complete professional certification requirements, or take advantage of affordable in-state tuition. Students from other colleges are required to complete a nondegree status application for admission in advance of registration.
A number of scheduling options are available beginning in late May and run through mid-August. Summer Session courses and course registration dates are posted online in January, including credit-hour limits and other important registration information. Students seeking financial aid for Summer Session should consult the Financial Aid Office Summer Aid web page prior to registering.
