Applying online to UB is fast, easy and secure. Just choose EITHER the Common Application or the State University of New York (SUNY) application. A $50 non-refundable fee is required with each option. You only need to submit ONE of these applications.
For fall semester admission, submit an application early in the fall of your senior year of high school. To be considered for a merit scholarship, we recommend that you apply by Dec. 1 and submit all of the required supporting documents (test scores, transcripts and letters of recommendation) by Dec. 31. Scholarship notices are mailed, along with admission offers, beginning in early March.
Please complete and submit ONLY ONE:
The Common Application allows students to apply to any of the nearly 400 selective member colleges and universities using a single application.
The SUNY application allows students to apply to several SUNY institutions with one application. If you apply using the SUNY application, you are required to also complete the SUNY supplemental. Once you complete both parts of the SUNY application, you can check its status here: Application Status.
The university’s Early Decision option is designed for freshmen who are committed to attending UB if accepted. The deadline for Early Decision applications is Nov. 1. Notification of acceptance will occur by Dec. 15. Accepted Early Decision candidates are expected to withdraw applications to other colleges and universities and to accept UB's offer no later than Jan. 15 for fall admission.
We will be using email to communicate with you about any items missing from your application, so it is essential that you monitor your email for this important information. It is your responsibility to check your email regularly for updates.
The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) is required to ensure that a student’s language skills don’t prevent them from successfully completing university-level courses in the United States. In general, the TOEFL is required of applicants whose native language is not English, and if any portion of their high school studies was completed in a non-English speaking country. Additionally, students who speak English as a second language and have SAT critical reading scores below 380 are encouraged to take the TOEFL.
