We’re a SUNY campus, and that means the cost of attending Buffalo State is affordable and about one-third that of a private college. We're here to help you navigate the financial aid process, from budgeting to available aid programs.
Type of Aid
Grants are usually given to students based solely on a demonstration of financial need.
Scholarships are based on specific criteria which includes academic merit, financial need, field of study, or a combination.
Work study is available during the fall and spring semesters. On average, students are eligible to work up to 12 hours per week.
Loans are a form of aid that must be repaid after graduation or when attendance drops below half-time status.
This program provides grants of up to $4,000 a year to students who are completing or plan to complete course work needed to begin a career in teaching.
Say Yes Buffalo Scholarships and Grants are available to graduates of Buffalo public and charter schools and are privately funded by individuals, families, businesses, and organizations.
The federal CARES Act provides funding for students who have experienced financial hardship as a result of transitioning to online learning due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
