Congratulations on being accepted to UB. We look forward to seeing you on campus — but first, make sure you know what you need to do before you get here.



As a graduate student, you should visit the Graduate School website and follow the steps in the new student checklist. You should also check with your department for additional information, requirements and program-specific orientation.
