 Submit Immunization Records

In order to register for classes, all students must be in compliance with New York State law and Buffalo State requirements regarding immunizations. More information on the immunization requirements and health insurance policy is available from the Weigel Wellness Center.

 Complete Transfer Pre-Advisement

You must complete the online Transfer Pre-Advisement Tutorial prior to registering for courses. This explains college policies, how to register for classes, how to read your DegreeWorks report, and required general education (IF2014) courses.

Register for Orientation and Academic Advisement

At Buffalo State, all transfer students are required to attend orientation. At orientation, you will meet your adviser, register for classes, and learn about the resources and opportunities available to Buffalo State students.

Though you can register for courses prior to meeting with your adviser, academic advisement with your academic department is strongly encouraged prior to the start of your first semester at Buffalo State.
