Students are reviewed for academic dismissal at the end of each academic semester (fall, spring, and summer).
Students may be dismissed from Buffalo State for the following reasons:
Each dismissed student will receive official notification via U.S. mail to the student’s address of record with the college or the student’s Buffalo State e-mail account, and all future academic-year registrations and on-campus housing reservations will be removed. Dismissal appeal guidelines and deadlines are communicated to the student in the dismissal letter.
A student placed on academic probation/warning may not appeal the decision unless the student is able to produce specific documentation demonstrating an error in the data underlying the probation decision.
A dismissed student may appeal the decision if there are documented extenuating circumstances for the student’s poor academic performance. Students must submit the Academic Dismissal Appeals Form (Word format) (PDF format) along with their personal statement and related documentation by the deadline noted in their dismissal letters and on the appeals form in order to have their appeal considered.
Students who have been academically dismissed must wait one full year from the time of dismissal before being considered for readmission and/or non-matriculated enrollment at Buffalo State.
A dismissed student may not attend Buffalo State summer session courses.
If readmitted, all coursework taken previously at Buffalo State will be considered in calculating the cumulative average, unless the student has opted for academic clemency.
All prior Buffalo State coursework, including clemency-bearing credits, will be used in calculating the readmitted student’s federal and state financial aid eligibility at Buffalo State. Readmission forms are available in the Admissions Office, Moot Hall.
