College Opportunity Mentoring Program Achieving Student Success
COMPASS is a special consideration program that recognizes the unique talent and capabilities that select students bring to our campus community. It is designed for students who did not meet the criteria for regular admission, but have demonstrated the potential for success in college. The program provides them with a supportive environment throughout their first year at Buffalo State where they can develop these talents and flourish, both academically and socially, with the assistance of a dedicated professional and student staff.
COMPASS is designed to help new students find their way and stay on the right path during the first year of college. Participation in the program requires students to participate in a one-week one-credit summer bridge program, take courses in the COMPASS learning community, and meet with peer mentor throughout the year who will assist them in developing their academic and personal skills such as study techniques, test taking strategies, and stress management.
