Graduate Credit for 2018 Conference Attendees

Do you need university credit to maintain your counseling and/or teaching certificate? Do you find it challenging in the international context to get credit for the conferences you attend outside your state?

SUNY Buffalo State offers the option of University level graduate credit for members who attend our Conference. The credits for professional development are regular graduate semester credits.


Deadline for any official accepted and active SUNY Buffalo State student to enroll in a conference course and complete the course work is August 1 for the Summer Semester.

See below for the full information & application packet.


How many credits can I apply for?
Educators can obtain one, two or three graduate level conference credit (EDU 596) through SUNY Buffalo State when attending our Conference. One credit includes 15 contact hours, two credits includes 30 contact hours and three credits includes 45 contact hours. In addition to contact hours (instructional activities) there are assignments to complete which represent additional time and effort representative of graduate level work.

How to Apply for Credit
Students must apply and be accepted as a non-matriculating (non degree-seeking) or as a degree-seeking, Master of Science in Multidisciplinary Studies student prior to registering for conference credit.  Admissions information and application forms can be found here.


Your professor for this course will be Dr. Susan Keller-Mathers, an Associate Professor at SUNY Buffalo State and Interim Director for the International Graduate Programs for Educators. To ensure your success in completing your assignments, you are encouraged to reach out with your questions to Dr. Keller-Mathers prior to submitting your final work.
