Paying Your Deposits

Congratulations on your acceptance to the University at Buffalo! UB has chosen you, and now it’s your turn to choose UB and reserve your place at one of the best public universities in the United States.

Deposit Deadline Extended to June 1

We know that the impact's of COVID-19 may affect your ability to pay your deposit by May 1. So the deadline has been extended.

Scholarships: If you received a scholarship offer you are still required to deposit by May 1 in order to keep your award. 

Once you have decided that UB is the school for you, it’s time to reserve your place here by paying your tuition deposit. After we receive your tuition deposit, our office will start processing your I-20 / DS-2019 (if needed).

If you are planning to live on campus, this is also the time to reserve your room by paying the housing deposit. Housing is limited and is reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.
