Costs & Aid

How to go far in your field, not deep into debt.

A degree from the University at Buffalo isn’t just good for your mind; it’s good for your wallet, too. When cost is a deciding factor in attending college, it’s hard to find a better value than UB.

Our students receive a top-notch education with tuition at a fraction of the cost of a private college or university of comparable quality. Add to that merit-based scholarships and traditional financial aid, and you have an education that’s as affordable as possible.
