Academic advising at Buffalo State is a relationship between students and advisers that prepares students to successfully navigate college processes; understand the parts and purpose of degree requirements; follow a meaningful, experience-rich path from matriculation to choosing majors to timely graduation; evaluate post-graduate career options; and become positive, contributing members of the Buffalo State alumni community.
Strong advisement helps students complete their degree on time. It is therefore the policy of Buffalo State that every matriculated undergraduate student will be advised every semester. As a result, all matriculated undergraduates have advising PINs applied to their Banner registration accounts.
In order to register, students must meet with their adviser to obtain their PIN and to discuss their course schedule for the upcoming semester. Please schedule an appointment with your assigned adviser early each term (as early as three weeks before registration begins) to receive advisement on your course of study. Your adviser will then provide you with a unique advising PIN that you need to register.
