Q. What is Mandatory Advising?
Academic advising at Buffalo State is a relationship between students and advisers that prepares students to successfully navigate college processes; understand the parts and purpose of degree requirements; follow a meaningful, experience-rich path from matriculation to choosing majors to timely graduation; evaluate post-graduate career options; and become positive, contributing members of the Buffalo State alumni community.
Academic advising is required each term for all matriculated undergraduates at Buffalo State. Students are encouraged to contact their advisers early in the semester (as early as the third week of classes) to discuss their academic goals and progress.
