SCHEDULE A VISIT OR VIRTUAL INTERVIEW
While you can learn a lot about a school from our website or requesting additional information, the best way to learn about SEM is to schedule a visit and experience our community for yourself.
It is also important for us to meet you. As part of the application process we require every applicant to have an interview on campus.
E-mail us to schedule a visit to Buffalo Seminary and an interview with the Admission Office. If you are unable to visit campus, you can e-mail us to set up a virtual interview instead.
