Each summer, science teachers attend the unique Summer Physics Academy at Buffalo State. This program is ideal for those who teach full time during the school year. Workshop classes are offered during the summer and electives are offered at night and online. Visiting (non Buffalo State College) students must apply before registering. Three courses are offered during the summer, after schools close. All courses are taught by a collaboration between college faculty members and experienced master (high school) physics teachers. The work is intensive, and instructors are available during and after class to assist with assignments and projects.
Tuition and fees are roughly $500/credit (in-state) and $900/credit (out-of-state). See BSC's Accounts website for more exact tuition info. Some financing is available. Students who do not need the full credits may be able to arrange for lower tuition. Please contact Dan MacIsaac for details.
For those choosing to live on or near campus (strongly encouraged!), apartment-style housing is available on campus (was ~$60 per night in 2019), and several hotels are nearby. Parking permits are $10.
