Buffalo State (SUNY) Graduate Credit

Graduate Credit for AISA Professional Learning

Buffalo State University of New York (SUNY), offers the option of graduate credit for all AISA Conferences and Professional Learning Institutes (PLIs). The credits for professional development are regular graduate semester credits.

Deadlines for official acceptance, enrollment in an event and course work completion for each semester are May 1 for Spring Semester, Aug. 1 for Summer Semester, and Dec. 1 for the Fall Semester.

How many credits can I apply for?

Educators can obtain one, two or three graduate level conference credits (EDU 596) through Buffalo State when attending a professional educators’ conference or PLI. One credit includes 15 contact hours (and approximately 30 assignment hours), two credits include 30 contact hours (and approximately 60 assignment hours) and three credits include 45 contact hours (and approximately 90 assignment hours). “Contact hours” refers to your time spent doing conference-related learning activities. “Assignment hours” refers to the time spent on homework assignments in the course.
How to Apply for Credit

For each conference vetted as an approved conference by IGPE for graduate credit, there is a specific registration form. Forms can be obtained through the International Graduate Programs for Educators office. 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.

Your professor for this course will be Dr. Susan Keller-Mathers, an Associate Professor at 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.

Email Dr. Keller-Mathers with your questions and/or to set up a meeting with her.
