Buffalo State College Applies to Become a University

Buffalo State College has applied to become a university, Buffalo Business First reported.Buffalo State College

"University status helps recruitment both in the United States and on the international stage,” BSC – which is still waiting on state approval for the move – said in a statement. β€œOnce effective, the change at Buffalo State will also reflect its comprehensive academic offerings, including 79 competitive undergraduate programs and 64 rigorous graduate programs, and its outreach to traditional, nontraditional, and international students. We expect to make a formal announcement early in 2023."
