Step 2: Forward Your Transcripts

Ask the registrar’s office at your previous college(s) to send an official transcript to ub-admissions@buffalo.edu or:

Electronic versions of your transcripts are strongly recommended. A separate official transcript must be received from each institution you previously attended.

If you have completed fewer than 24 credit hours at the time of application, ask your high school to also send UB an official transcript. SAT or ACT results should be forwarded directly to UB from the testing agency. UB’s SAT code is 2925. Our ACT code is 2978.

Final Transcripts

If you currently have courses in progress, please ask the registrar of your college to send a final official transcript directly to the Office of Admissions as soon as the semester is completed. Be sure that any degree received is noted on the transcript. Your acceptance is provisional until final records are received.

UB Grading System

We calculate an entry-level GPA for the purpose of determining admission to UB. This calculation includes all coursework attempted, using the UB grading system outlined on the chart below.
