Will COVID-related credits affect my UB Presidential Scholarship?

Presidential Scholarship amounts may have been reduced to reflect COVID-related credits you received from the university.

After COVID-related credits were applied to your student account, your overall cost of attendance is effectively reduced. Therefore, we have adjusted Presidential Scholarship amounts to align to UB’s temporary COVID-related reduction in the cost of attendance. Presidential Scholarship amounts will be adjusted as follows:

  • If a combination of your Presidential Scholarship and other grants and scholarships paid the entire cost of attendance for the spring 2020 semester, your Presidential Scholarship was reduced by an amount equal to credits you received. In this case, your entire cost of attendance is still covered. This scholarship reduction is limited to the spring semester and will have no impact on future fiscal year scholarships
  • If your scholarships and grants did not cover the full cost of attendance, your Presidential Scholarship amount will not be reduced.
