Frequently asked questions about enrolling at UBCCC.
An online waiting list (OWL) is maintained independently for both centers. Parents/guardians can register online to let us know their preferences for enrollment. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to assure that all online application information is kept current. OWL registrations are prioritized by, (1) date submitted to the center and (2) with the following priorities:
Families can remain on the waiting list until a space becomes available that meets their needs. Families will be notified of openings via e-mail (see communication question below). If a family is offered a space in the program(s) to which they have applied and declines, their name can remain on the list for the following semester. Once again, it is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to keep their OWL account current, including preferred start date.
There are approximately 29,000 students and 9,000 employees at UB, but only about 200 spaces combined between both center locations.
Other factors that affect placement on the wait list:
These factors can make a wait list number misleading and often times meaningless.
Our Administrative Assistants will be the main contacts during the wait list process.
More communication can be seen on our Application & Waitlist page.
We recommend that families visit at least once, if not more, to make your child’s transition easier!
UBCCC does not have tuition reduction for absence. You continue to pay the full tuition amount even when your child is absent. With regards to vacations, this will secure your child’s spot upon return.
All of our permanent full-time staff (and many of our part-time employees) has CPR/First Aid certifications (updated every 2 years).
