Cross Registration allows full time undergraduate Buffalo State students to cross register for an additional course at another approved institution. Please see the Registrar’s Office for additional information. Graduate students may also be eligible under certain circumstances as well.
Buffalo State students that are participating in a National Student Exchange Program or an International Exchange Program (approved by the Office of International Education) will have their eligible federal and state financial aid processed by Buffalo State. Students may only receive federal and state aid from one institution per semester. Once our office has been notified that you have been accepted into an approved program, we will notify your host institution by sending them a consortium agreement that you will receive your aid through Buffalo State. Please note it is the responsibility of the student to pay all charges accrued at the host institution. Buffalo State does not forward any aid on behalf of the student.
For incoming students to Buffalo State on an approved program, if your home institution requires you to have our institution complete a consortium agreement, please use the following contact information:
