The Academic Advising Center (AAC) helps you to become a member of our college community, to think critically about your roles and responsibilities as a student, and to become a citizen of a democratic society and a global community.
We believe excellent academic advising will engage you, challenge you, and help you realize your fullest potential. We emphasize three areas: helping you make decisions about your academic career, helping you understand college programs and policies, and helping you to identify and meet your goals.
The AAC serves all Buffalo State students and carries a primary responsibility for serving undeclared students. We pair students with dedicated faculty and staff advisers who work with you several times each semester to help you consider course registration, possible programs, potential careers, and how to negotiate any difficulties you may encounter along the way. The AAC also provides academic advisement development and assistance to all interested Buffalo State faculty and staff.
Academic advising is mandatory at Buffalo State and students are encouraged to contact their adviser early in the semester (as early as the third week of classes) to discuss their academic goals and progress.
