For 40 years, the University at Buffalo Educational Opportunity Center (UBEOC) has been in the forefront of building a ladder out of poverty -- through education -- for economically and educationally disadvantaged citizens in Western New York residents. UBEOC began as a vehicle for non-traditional students to prepare for college and employment. Over time UBEOC has expanded its mission of serving disadvantaged adults into an integrated system of education, student support services, and demand-driving vocational training programs that lead to entry-level job placement, career track employment in information technology, and employed in alled health.
The Buffalo Educational Opportunity Center offers year round academic support to adult learners in Western New York. Our instructors are dedicated to providing hands-on learning in small classrooms. 
Looking for a career gateway? Sign up for one of our vocational or allied health trainings! UBEOC students are being prepared to earn gainful employment in the customer services, healthcare, IT, and hospitality industries. 
New York State has selected a new high school equivalency test called the Test Assessing Secondary Completion (TASC) to replace the General Educational Development (GED).
At UBEOC, the classroom is just a starting point. Our students receive a full range of career services to prepare for internships and job placement. Find out how you can earn at starting salary of $30,000 or more by completing one of our vocational trainings.
