What We’re Looking For
Admission to UB is based on a holistic review process. This means our counselors thoughtfully consider every component of the application when making a decision.
While high school performance matters, we know that UB students are more than grades and test scores. As your student prepares to apply to college, encourage them to focus on the activities and pursuits that make them a well-rounded person, like volunteer experience, creative talents, community service and leadership experiences.

How to Apply
When your student is ready to apply to UB, they can choose from two online applications: the Common Application or the SUNY Application. Read more on our How to Apply page. (Please note: If your student is planning to transfer to UB, the application process may differ. Read about applying as a transfer.)
