Admission Requirements

What does it take to get in?

You are considered a transfer student if you’ve completed at least 12 credit hours of college-level work after graduating from high school.

Which credentials are considered?

  • If you’ve completed more than 24 college credit hours at the time you apply, we review your previous college academic record.
  • If you’ve completed fewer than 24 credit hours at the time you apply, we review your high school transcript, SAT and/or ACT test scores, and previous college academic record. Emphasis will be placed on your college academic record.

In order to be considered for transfer admission to UB, we recommended that students present a strong record of college study, earning a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.5 on a 4.0 scale. It should be noted, however, that requirements may vary depending on academic program.

Please note that some departments have supplemental admission criteria, higher GPA requirements, departmental application deadlines and limited capacity.
