The list is updated daily until the end of the semester. Instructors should run a roster weekly to reflect any changes (late add, withdraw from course, etc.). Run the roster just before and during the first week of classes. The roster allows instructors to communicate via e-mail to any student individually or to all students. Only students listed on the class roster are allowed to sit in the class.

Contact the Barnes and Noble at Buffalo State bookstore for textbook and supply ordering information or visit the bookstore online for ordering. The 2016-2017 deadlines for ordering are:
Receiving textbook information by these dates allows the bookstore to assist the campus in its compliance with the Higher Education Opportunity Act by posting book information on the website at the time of student registration. Timeliness also allows the bookstore to deal with common problems such as out-of-stocks, out-of-prints, edition changes, and vendor changes. Having textbook information earlier enables the bookstore to pay higher prices to students for their used textbooks during buy-back season and increases the supply of used textbooks available to students for the upcoming semester.
The bookstore offers digital textbooks, textbook rental, and used and new textbook options to give students money-saving choices.
New instructors, refer to Getting Started-Ordering Textbooks and Supplies.
Instructors are expected to meet their classes each scheduled time during the semester and for the full allotted time scheduled, including during CEP (Critique and Evaluation Period). Students cannot be faulted for leaving the classroom if the instructor fails to arrive within a reasonable time.
Should an instructor need to cancel a class meeting time unexpectedly, the instructor should notify the department office as soon as possible so a note can be placed on the classroom door. In addition, the instructor should, if possible, attempt to notify students via e-mail or Blackboard Learn.
Instructors may not change their assigned meeting rooms without official notification to the Registrar through their department offices. To move a class without formal notification to the Registrar's Office means that both you and the students in your class may be unreachable in case of an emergency. In addition, rooms showing as empty on the campus database may be assigned to other activities by the Events Management Office. Once an official change has been effected, notes should be placed in the old room directing students to the new room once the semester has started.
The Registrar's website provides a summary of rooms and type by building. R-25 Building and Room File
Instructors are required to notify students of their academic standing no later than the end of the ninth week of the semester, or after two-thirds of a summer session or J-Term so that students have reasonable time to withdraw from a course. See Mid-Semester Evaluations.
Refer to the Undergraduate Grading Explanation Sheet and the Graduate Grading Explanation Sheet on the Registrar's Resources page for assigning grades to students who do not officially withdraw from a course and fail to continue with the course or never show.
Refer to Religious Observance Policy for students because of religious belief unable to attend classes on certain days.
