Fall 2021 Students

Welcome Future Bengals!

After you have accepted your offer of admission to Buffalo State and your deposit has been accepted, your next step to becoming a Bengal is attending orientation. Information about registering for orientation will be sent to the email address you used to apply for admission to Buffalo State.

Students should also log into the pre-orientation tutorial. Email instructions on how to access the portal were emailed after your student deposit was confirmed.

The summer 2021 live virtual orientation registration portal will be open beginning May 10, 2021. To register for an orientation session, you will need to log into your Buffalo State College applicant portal. Through the portal you will be able to register for a session. If you need to cancel and reschedule your session you can do that through the portal as well.

Upon registering, as your live virtual orientation approaches you will begin to receive a series of email reminders.  An email with the access link and instructions will be sent to your Buffalo State College email address 24 hours prior to your scheduled orientation session. Additionally, a final reminder will be emailed to you 1 hour prior on the day of your scheduled session.

Please note that the live virtual orientation session is mandatory for all incoming Buffalo State Students. The orientation fee is fixed for all students and will appear on your student account as a charge. Each student’s account will be billed for the cost of orientation regardless if you attend or not. First year student orientation cost is $125, this is not part of the $125 tuition deposit. 

**Summer 2021 Orientation Sessions begin June 21, 2021 and end July 29, 2021. Please be proactive with your registration as sessions have a max capacity and academic support programs are offering specialty support programs for students enrolled in EOP, Honors, Say Yes, and Veteran Affairs. Don’t miss out!

If you have questions you can text the Orientation office at 716-281-5521.
