The annual Honors Convocation is held each spring to recognize students who achieve academic excellence in their studies at Buffalo State and also to recognize the current top achieving undergraduate student in each academic department. Families, guests, and the campus community are invited to attend the ceremony and reception.
Students who achieve a cumulative 3.50 GPA or higher and have completed a minimum 60 credit hours at Buffalo State (30 for transfer students) by the close of grades in January are invited to attend the April ceremony. Eligible students receive an e-mail invitation and instructions at their Buffalo State student e-mail addresses in March.
Please know that the invitation to graduating seniors to wear the gold honors cord at Commencement is separate and different from your Honors Convocation invitation. The Gold Honors Cord section of the Commencement website provides information.
The Marketing and Communications Office at Buffalo State will send you e-mail notification that your achievement can be seen online at https://buffalostate.meritpages.com. You are welcome to share it using social media and e-mail at your discretion. In addition, Marketing and Communications will send a news release to your hometown paper. The releases are not individual; you will be grouped with other students who have the same community newspaper. An individual release will be sent only when a student is the only student in a community paper’s zip code. The Buffalo News and other major daily papers do not publish these types of announcements. Questions regarding news releases can be directed to the Marketing and Communications Office at (716) 878-4201.
