Graduate study at SUNY Buffalo State is an exceptional value. Information about payment options is available in the Student Accounts Office, Moot Hall 260, (716) 878-4121.
Students may be eligible to receive financial assistance to help cover costs. Visit the Financial Aid Office to find out your eligibility status for state or federal programs. Graduate assistantships, scholarships, and fellowships also are available.
International students must hold a baccalaureate degree from an institution that is accredited by an approved U.S. regional accrediting agency or a degree that is equivalent to a four-year bachelor's degree in the United States. International students must show proof of financial support for the duration of studies on the Confidential Statement of Finances form.
About $28,398 a year should be budgeted to cover expenses. By the time they arrive on campus, international students should have arranged for the funds to cover their college career. Payment of all college-related expenses must be made prior to the beginning of each semester. Once an applicant has been officially accepted to a degree program, the Graduate School will mail an acceptance letter and the paperwork necessary to apply for an I-20 form. The applicant must return these forms to the International Student Affairs Office which will send an I-20 form to the student to obtain an F-1 (student) visa from the United States embassy or consulate in their home country.
All international students must enroll in a group health insurance plan mandated by the State University of New York. International students may live on or off campus. On campus, they may live in the international residence hall, which remains open during United States holidays, or in any other residence hall, provided they move out of the hall during the holidays.
A completed international application packet must include:
