The fashion and textile technology program maintains an open door policy and therefore does not require a portfolio review for admission into the major.
However, due to the multiple concentration options and sequenced nature of the major, it is essential that any prospective student inform the department as to which concentration they would like listed on their Degree Navigator audit sheet.
The fashion and textile technology program has developed course equivalencies for Genesee Community College and Villa Maria College. To determine if your fashion-related college courses have equivalency at, visit the Transfer Articulation at Buffalo State page.
If your fashion related course in not listed and you would like to have a review of completed fashion related courses for potential college credit, you must make an appointment with department chair Lynn Boorady. Be sure to include your name, phone, BANNER ID, and fashion concentration.
The transfer student web page will assist you with any questions relating to general education transfer credits.
During summer and J-term orientation sessions, students are advised in small groups. Prospective students, especially transfer students, are encouraged to attend the first orientation session in the summer. At orientation and advisement, the student fills out an advisement form, states their fashion concentration and has the opportunity to meet one-on-one with a faculty member. A file is started on each student.
