What Students Are Saying

3.66 Average Rating
If you apply online there is no application fee and the form is much easier to fill out. When I was making my college decision, I went to an overnight at Canisius and that really let me see what the student life was really like.

Work out you finances and schooling beforehand. You never know if there are limited opportunities you could be walking right by. I found out at the end of my sophomore year that NCCC offers a great Digital Media Arts program that gets you an associates degree then sets you up to transfer to canisius, not only are you getting canisius accepted classes out of the way but you're saving money!
If you want to do something, change something please SPEAK UP! The school is extremely observant and if you need help, want change then TELL THEM. Struggling with finances, classes and life I was suffering alone, but when I spoke up I was immediately given attention. They want to help!
Katharyn from Buffalo, NY
Be prepared to get lower grades than you've received in high school, it's natural and happens to everyone. It's a big jump, going from high school to college, and Canisius is filled with opportunities for you. If you ever find yourself stuck, you can always talk to your advisor, one of the most helpful resources on the campus.
Al from Lancaster, NY
Prospective Canisius students must be ready to work hard, because if a student puts in all their effort here it is definitely rewarded. The teachers here are great and really go out of their way to help students and grade fairly.
