Completing your college education or advanced degree is among life's most significant accomplishments and we share your great pride. We warmly invite you and your family to participate in the Buffalo State 145th Commencement ceremony and reception on Saturday, May 13, 2017 on our Elmwood Avenue campus.
We are planing just for YOU, the Class of 2017! Many people on and off campus are involved in planning and being there for you on your special day. Eligible degree candidates (those with an active degree application on record) received an informational mailing at their permanent addresses during spring break.
Learn the distinction between graduating and attending commencement.
Bachelor's degree candidates may opt in to receive occasional text updates via Remind academic texting service. Go to Receive Text Updates for instructions.
Seniors graduating with bachelor's degrees are invited to a special Commencement Preview & Celebration, Friday, May 12 in the Sports Arena. Arrival is at 2:30 p.m., with the event running 3-4:30 p.m.
No need to wait for graduation to learn about your alumni association...yes, YOUR Buffalo State Alumni Association. You are soon to graduate to the ranks of more than 100,000 Buffalo State alumni living worldwide. Take a few moments to acquaint yourself with the membership benefits and get a preview of the services, events, and activities that await.
Above all, continue to work hard as you complete your degree, and relish these moments on campus as you prepare for new challenges and accomplishments.
