Here is how to take the first step.

We are glad that you are considering UB and our program for your college education. Please visit the Office of Admissions for an overview of how to apply for admission to UB and be considered for EOP. 

Important Things to Remember

  • It is important that you answer “Yes” to the EOP question. EOP applicants are not required to pay the application fee and are not eligible for Early Action admission.
  • SAT and ACT requirements for admissions for the 2021-22 academic year are temporarily suspended for the spring 2021, fall 2021 and spring 2022 cycles. Students can share their scores as part of their application if they choose by selecting this option on their application. 
  • You should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Fill out the FAFSA even if you are not sure you’re applying to UB. The application opens on Oct. 1. Note: New York State residents will initiate the TAP application process by completing the FAFSA. A separate application is not required.
  • When we receive your application, the Office of Admissions will first determine your academic eligibility and if deemed academically eligible send you information about how to verify your financial eligibility for EOP.  Visit the SUNY website for the most current information.
