Although you can apply to UB in several ways, we recommend our International Undergraduate Student Paper Application form because it is easy and fast. If you use our UB International Application form, you can pay the application fee on our secure payment site. Below are instructions on how to submit the paper application form and pay the application fee.
Download the application form and complete it.
Make sure to sign the applicant certification portion of the application before submitting it to us.
You can pay the application fee by credit card, check or money order. Paying by credit card is fastest and most efficient.
To pay by credit card you must pay the fee online. Select “$50 International Undergraduate Application Fee.”
Once you have paid the fee you will receive an application fee confirmation receipt by email. Keep this email; you will need to submit it with your application.
If you choose to pay by check or money order, please make it payable to “University at Buffalo” in the amount of $50 USD.
You can submit your application form and fee payment by mail or electronically through email.
You can scan your completed application form (2 pages) and your
fee payment confirmation (if you paid by credit card on UB’s
payment website) and email both documents to
If you choose to mail your application form, mail your completed application form along with your application fee (or receipt) to our office:
Office of International Admissions
University at Buffalo

Email is the fastest way to submit the paper application form and application fee. The email method will save 10 – 15 days of standard processing time compared to using regular mail.
DO NOT SEND ANY OTHER DOCUMENTS TO UB IN THE MAIL. You will be scanning and uploading all your application materials to our SMART form online.
