The Students Needing Assistance Program (SNAP) helped qualified students obtain their own computer. Learn how to remain eligible for your SNAP loan, and how to remove a SNAP-related hold on your student account.
UB no longer accepts applications for SNAP.
During your time enrolled at UB you signed up for SNAP. You received either a loan computer, or a $500 loan towards a purchase of a new computer. To remain eligible for the program you had to do the following:
If you did not do as stated above you were required to pay back the unused portion (depreciated value) of the loan to the SNAP Program as per the depreciation chart included in your original loan contract.
A hold was placed on your account after we were unable to resolve the unpaid SNAP contract over a semester. To see your amount due, check your SNAP status or email firstname.lastname@example.org with your complete name and UB Person Number.
Students should email email@example.com with their UB Person Number and full name (as it appears in UB records) while they were enrolled at UB.
To remove a hold on your student account you must buy out your SNAP contract. Payments can be made by mailing a check or money order to the address below:
