Alumni can receive the college magazine, 1300 Elmwood, twice a year in the mail, or the stories can be accessed online. 

Auditing Classes

Alumni may audit courses without earning credit, with the approval of the department chair and the instructor of the course. A person auditing a course will not receive a grade or earn credit for the course. The auditor's role beyond attending class, such as completing assignments, receiving instructor feedback and taking exams should be agreed upon with the instructor. Tuition is not charged; however, course auditors may be expected to purchase textbooks and supplies necessary to participate in the class (e.g., art supplies). Information may be found on the Registrar's website. All students are required to complete the Official Permission to Audit a Course form and return it to the Registrar's Office.

Exception: Auditing is not permitted in any study-abroad program.

Special audit: Persons more than 60 years of age may audit courses on a space-available basis. Arrangements can be made through the Admissions Office, Moot Hall, (716) 878-4017.

Course offerings can be found on Buffalo State's website. The instructor’s name is generally listed. For the faculty member’s contact information check with the department or the online directory on Buffalo State's website or contact the Alumni Office for assistance.
