As we prepare for the 2020-21 academic year, we realize that COVID-19 has had a significant impact on our students and their families financially. UB’s leadership is focused on keeping the cost of a UB education as affordable as possible. Below is a summary of approved tuition and fees for fall 2020 with additional information to provide clarity on how these rates were defined and how they will be used.
For fall 2020, SUNY’s Board of Trustees is maintaining 2019-20 tuition rates.
In addition, SUNY clarified its policy for Non-Resident Online Tuition eligibility for all SUNY institutions to specify that this rate applies only to academic programs that are “exclusively online.”
Effective fall 2020, the non-resident online tuition rate will be charged to students taking courses in exclusively online academic programs that have been previously approved by the Provost’s Office and registered by the New York State Education Department.
These programs are in distance education format, consistent with the student’s intention to take courses exclusively online at the time of application and matriculation toward the degree. Students who are non-residents whose intent is to be on campus learning, but may be studying remotely, will be charged the nonresidential rate.
A list of the approved online academic programs offered at UB can be found below.
Note: New York State residents enrolled in online academic programs will be charged the tuition rate for resident students.
Based on the legislative history of the online rate, which is set forth in NYS Education Law §355(2)(h)(4), it is clear such rate was intended only for those online courses in programs that are exclusively online. The legislative intent was to apply such rate to courses in programs that are exclusively online for students with no intention of coming to learn on a campus.
The following programs are the academic programs at UB that are available exclusively online, as of fall 2020. Students enrolled in these academic programs are eligible for Non-resident Online Tuition rates and are eligible for the Comprehensive Fee Waiver.
