PhD students who wish to apply for financial aid are encouraged to apply before January 2 for Fall enrollment. At this time, MA students are not eligible for financial aid.
Approximately two-thirds of our active graduate students have been funded from a variety of financial resources. Some appointments include various forms of assistantships. Several scholarships and fellowships are also available.
Due to the on-going global pandemic, PhD funding will be limited for fall 2021-2022 admission. We anticipate being able to fund very few new students. Potential applicants should consider this circumstance in making their decision to apply. In case of doubt, please contact the Director of Graduate Studies or the Director of Graduate Admissions. As circumstances change, this message will be updated.
As a state university, UB offers quality education at a price which is moderate. For current tuition and fees, please visit the UB Student Response Center.
