About Buffalo State College

Buffalo State is a place to learn, grow, and prepare for Your Future. Students find that Buffalo State provides the best of both worlds, a suburban-like campus in a vibrant, metropolitan neighborhood. The stimulating intellectual and cultural environment offers many informal social and recreational opportunities. The focus is on academics, with an emphasis on applied, marketable skills grounded in a strong liberal arts education. Buffalo State is large enough to offer a tremendous variety of educational programs, yet small enough to offer personal attention in small classes.

Why Attend Buffalo State College

Buffalo State offers over 160 degrees in day, evening and weekend formats. The College has one of the lowest tuition rates in the state of New York. Class sizes are small and faculty members are available after class or during office hours. The College has a "veterans one-stop center" managed by a veteran coordinator.
