Parent and Family Orientation

Parent and Family Orientation is a vital step in supporting your Buffalo State student. The New Student and Family Programs office at Buffalo State College offers a Parent and Family Orientation during all New Student and Transfer Student Orientations.  The program runs concurrent with the student program, but is a separate program to meet the specific needs of parents and family members. Parent/Family members will not be staying on campus and are responsable for their own accommodations. 

Orientation dates and cost for both first-year (FY) and transfer (TR) parent/family members are listed below. To sign-up for Family/Parent Orientation make sure you are entered on your student's oreintation application. 

Should you have any questions regarding the parent/family member programs, your students' orientation, or need guidance, please contact our office and we will be happy to assist. Please feel free to contact us via email at nsfp@buffalostate.edu or via phone at 716-878-5336.
