Recommended Posts

Hey all, 

I just signed up for my Information and Library Science classes at SUNY Buffalo (online) and I'm very excited.   Starting in Fall 2018.  

After months of waiting for late acceptance letters and struggling with the final decision, I chose SUNY Buffalo over Queens College, SUNY Albany, and LIU.  

Congrats! I have a coworker who is starting UB's program in the fall.

@Keyjennic - Hey, quick question! I'm still waiting on my official letter. The last thing I received was an email welcoming me to the program. Did your letter mention anything about a deposit? The email I received mentioned that I need to commit to the program by May 7. I was just wondering how much money if any I need to set aside in the next week or so!

I have no idea. I checked our P.O. box this morning and I haven't gotten a letter yet. 

I am wondering about accepting the acceptance. I emailed Dr. Bourne back, but I haven't gotten a response back about the acceptance. Did you? I'm also wondering about orientation. My son is heading to UA in the fall and wondering if our orientations will be the same day and such. So many questions.

No problem, I wasn't sure if the letter was coming in the mail or as an email. 

I did email Dr. Bourne to accept my spot and she emailed me back. Hopefully she will get back to you soon. She's been fairly responsive to my emails so I'm assuming she'll confirm that she received your answer. I've heard that the orientation will be August 15-August 18th. I believe the event on the evening of August 15th is optional. That's all I know so far!

I got my email accepting my acceptance. So that's one less worry. I have asked off work for August 15th-18th. Maybe we can meet face to face. I would have made a friend. :)

I think we are getting a hard copy of our acceptance, too. I like the idea of tangible proof lol. Do ya'll know how long it takes to formalize our admission so that we can register for classes?

As far as I know we will receive registration info in a letter from Dr. Elmborg, the program director. I'm not sure when we're supposed to receive the letter. I was told it would be "soon" but I haven't received anything yet.

Yay! I would love that! I am waiting to book my flight until I get my letter so I can see the exact schedule. I am tentatively planning on arriving Wednesday night or Thursday morning and I'm planning on leaving on Sunday most likely.

I got an email telling me who my advisor is and how to register. Right now, I'm having trouble registering because I don't see a place to do that.

I had the same issue. I haven’t been able to register yet. I emailed my advisor and I guess they’re working on it. I called the registrar’s office and they said it’s because the department hasn’t officially updated the online application so we don’t have access to the right page. I’m not sure when we’re going to be able to register, but hopefully soon.

Congrats everyone! I'm already registered. I'm so excited to attend that I already ordered a book or two lol So far it seems like library science textbooks are relatively cheaper than what I'm used to paying for :)
