Admission Requirements

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 will review your high school transcript in addition to your previous college academic record.
  • UB does not require SAT and ACT test scores for admissions and scholarship consideration. Students can share their scores as part of their application if they choose by selecting this option on their application. If submitting scores, SAT or ACT standardized test scores must be submitted directly from the testing agency. UB's SAT code is 2925. The ACT code is 2978. UB welcomes students from all backgrounds, and every application goes through the same holistic review process. Read our test-optional admissions FAQ.

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.
