Broad-based fee waivers are granted on a per-semester basis for Buffalo State students who meet one of these three conditions:
Summer session is deemed one semester for consideration of broad-based fee waivers.
Students may apply for a fee waiver until one week after the registration deadline for each term or semester.
Fee waivers are not automatic. Students must apply for them, as follows:
To apply, please log in to Banner, then go to Student > Student Account. Click on "Broad-based Fee Waiver Requirements" and follow the application instructions.
If a waiver application is approved, a refund will be processed within six weeks after the drop/add period has ended. If a waiver application is denied, an e-mail notification will be sent within six weeks after the drop/add period has ended.
Fees subject to waiver are the athletics, health and transportation fees. Once a fee waiver is granted to a student, access to all services provided by the fees will cease for that student for the remainder of the term or semester.
