Academic Support Services

Keeping you on track every step of the way.

Supporting you throughout your undergraduate career is how UB helps its students succeed. Our commitment to a student-centered culture is found in the many services and resources that encourage your academic and personal success at UB and your preparation for life after it. Our campus-wide network of advisors includes specialists in each of our eight schools and colleges and expert advisors dedicated to supporting students who explore alternative pathways and participate in experiential learning.

At UB, students receive personalized guidance with four-year academic plans, as well as access to an abundance of tools to keep you on track, including free tutoring, various support services, and the vast resources offered through the MyUB portal.

As an incoming student, you’ll be assigned an advisor before orientation who will help get you on the right path. Together, you’ll discuss class choices, course assignments, academic requirements, available majors, criteria for admission into special majors and more.
