Our admission decisions are based on a variety of factors that may include strength of curriculum, record of academic achievement, standardized test scores, class rank, essays, and recommendations. Generally, students with averages of 85 or better, combined critical reading and math SAT scores of 1,000 or higher and/or an ACT composite score of 22 are competitive.
The Muriel A. Howard Honors Program is a challenging opportunity for outstanding, intellectually committed undergraduate students. To qualify, high school students must have a GPA of 90 or higher and have combined critical reading and math SAT scores of 1,100 or higher. A supplemental application for the Muriel A. Howard Honors Program is sent to those students who meet the above criteria.
Buffalo State's International Education Office coordinates international study programs in Australia, Canada, England, the Netherlands, Puerto Rico, and Spain as well as the venerable Siena (Italy) Program, SUNY's first and oldest study-abroad program. Students may also choose from programs in more than 60 countries through Buffalo State and SUNY international education partnerships.
Students deemed ineligible for admission to Buffalo State may be referred to the community college sector for their first year of undergraduate study. Those students are encouraged to transfer as sophomores after successful completion of full-time course work (at least four full-credit courses per semester) with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 for possible consideration.
