Special Clubs and Programs
How to get involved when you get here.
UB has many programs designed especially for the transfer student community. Getting involved is a great way to connect with the campus and your fellow UB students.
Transfer Ambassador Program
As a new transfer student, you are assigned a Transfer Ambassador who will serve as a resource during your transition to UB. You can connect with your ambassador through email, by meeting up at university events and programs, or by meeting more informally to have your questions answered and to build friendships at UB right away. Ambassadors are transfer students who have navigated their transition successfully and are excited to help show you all that UB has to offer!
Tuesdays are for transfers! Join the Transfer Ambassadors each month for a relaxed, meet-up-style Transfer Tuesday, or come along for a Transfers Take event. These gatherings can help you meet other transfer students, connect with staff and resources, and learn from current students how to be successful at UB. Watch your email for our monthly newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest programs and events.
Transfer Student Honor Society
The University at Buffalo is pleased to offer the second oldest chapter of Tau Sigma National Honor Society for transfer students. Students who participate in the honor society are active members of the UB community. In order to be eligible for lifetime membership, you must obtain a minimum GPA of 3.5 after completing your first full-time semester at UB (a minimum of 12 credit hours must be completed). An induction ceremony is held each spring semester. Members sponsor a variety of programs that help new students become familiar with UB and make a smooth transition.
The Advanced Honors Program
The Advanced Honors Program is meant for academically high-achieving students, usually sophomores and juniors with a minimum GPA at UB of 3.5. Students can apply to the program after completing at least 45 credit hours (which includes AP, IB and college credits). Transfer students are encouraged to apply as they are applying to UB. Deadlines are Oct. 1 and March 1.
For more information and to apply, visit the program’s website or contact the University Honors College at 716-645-3020.
