Commencement is about our graduates, those students whom you have instructed, advised, mentored, and so often just given a little nudge of encouragement to help them on their educational and life paths. Thus, Commencement day is also about YOU. And YOU are the key to making this celebration a success!
The Commencement Committee extends a warm thank you to the many members of the Buffalo State community who generously offer their time to make our annual May Commencement celebration a memorable occasion for everyone. There are many up-front and behind-the-scenes individuals who make it happen, including the many faculty, staff, emeriti, student, and alumni marchers, hooders, and ushers who dedicate their time to be there for our graduates and their families on Commencement day.
Online registration for marching and volunteer ushering has closed. See Marchers or Volunteer Ushers to newly register or change your existing registration.
Faculty, staff, and advisers for departments, programs, and academic and service organizations, etc., please refer to the Commencement Honors Cord & Accessories Policy as you plan recognition for your graduates at Commencement.
