As Buffalo State College transitions to 100-percent remote instruction for the final three weeks of the fall semester, please know that faculty and staff are here to help!
There are a number of virtual resources available to help you succeed academically, stay connected with your friends and favorite organizations, and support your physical and mental well-being. If you have any questions about your classes, please don’t hesitate to contact your instructor or academic department for assistance.
In the meantime, here is an overview of resources that we encourage you to utilize over the next three weeks and beyond.
Students should visit the Keep Learning website to find resources about how to best navigate the remote learning environment. The site is a one-stop link to the learning tools that Buffalo State provides, as well as some ideas for Internet access and information about software options and support. The IT Help Desk also offers a number of online services to help student troubleshoot technical issues.
The staff of E. H. Butler Library are ready to assist you virtually over the next three weeks. A variety of library services and resources are available online:
For those students who remain in the Western New York area, E. H. Butler Library and StudyQuad will be open during limited hours through the end of the semester.
Advising, Tutoring, and Other Academic Support Services
Academic Commons remains the central source for advising, tutoring, and other academic support services to help students succeed. The services Academic Commons offers will be available and provided to students remotely. Additionally, Academic Success will be hosting two virtual Bengal Study Nights on December 9 and 10.
Student Affairs is here for students and remains committed to your well-being during this period of remote instruction.
Student Leadership and Engagement, Career Development Center, Health Promotions, and the Dean of Students Office will continue to offer programming on a variety of platforms, such as social media and Blackboard. Additionally, individual remote appointments can be made with Student Affairs staff by contacting offices and staff members directly. Connect with “Life at Buff State” on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter to stay up-to-date on end-of-semester programs.
Milligan’s Food Pantry will have online ordering available for students who may have food needs.
The Barnes and Noble at Buffalo State Bookstore is open and their hours are available online. The bookstore will remain open for in-person rental returns through December 18, 2021. If you prefer to ship your books back, you can print a shipping label for $5. Please ship rentals promptly after you have completed your finals, as late charges will go into effect on December 23, 2020.
Registration for J-Term and the spring semester is now open: https://registrar.buffalostate.edu/registration. All J-Term classes will be offered remotely this, while spring courses will be offered in a mix of face-to-face, hybrid, remote, and online formats.

The Financial Aid and Student Accounts offices will also be available virtually to answer questions about scholarships, loans, or billing.
Students are encouraged to monitor e-mail and the college’s Coronavirus Information website through the end of the semester and over winter break.
