Every student must assume full responsibility for knowledge of all of the deadlines, forms, rules, regulations and requirements of the program as detailed in this document. We ask that each student make copies of all of their applications, documents, course registrations, etc. Students should check the program website for updated program details once a semester at http://igpe.buffalostate.edu. Requirements and program details are subject to change, and students must be aware of current regulations.
Students are responsible for notifying International Graduate Programs for Educators of any official change of name. The formal name that is written on student’s Applications for Admission will be the only name that will be recognized in the SUNY Buffalo State system and by our office. All official records will be registered under that name unless we are notified of a change in name. Our staff, professors, and the Buffalo State data system do not recognize nicknames or different last names. It is important that students use the same name on all forms including course registrations and all correspondence with our office. Likewise, our office must be notified of any changes of email address or mailing address so that information and other mailings can be properly directed.
We kindly ask you to review these Program Details for answers to your questions. For questions not answered in this document, please email the appropriate staff person as indicated in this document. By doing so, you will lessen the time you wait for a response. Additionally, as we all know, emails aren’t always received, and we want to make sure you get answers to your questions as soon as possible. You can expect our staff to respond to your email within five U.S. business days, so please resend your email if you do not receive a response after five days.
Graduate work is an extremely rewarding endeavor that demands rigorous scholarship, research, creativity, and professional competence. We welcome you to our vibrant community of scholars, teachers and researchers.
