Start by filling out the Orientation Data Form to provide key information to UB.
After you submit your Orientation Data Form, you'll receive a confirmation email with important information about your next steps. If you don't see it within 5 minutes, check your spam folder.
First-year students will attend a two-day session on a Monday-Tuesday or Thursday-Friday from June 29 - July 31. Students attend orientation based on their major, therefore, not all dates are available to all students. Most students will have at least 2 out of the 9 dates available.
Transfer students attend a one-day session in June or August. Most students can choose to attend any of the four dates available.
Most students are able to attend an orientation session that works for their summer schedule. We do not recommend booking travel to campus.
We will communicate directly with students when the form becomes available.
Before selecting your orientation date, keep in mind other commitments, such as jobs, vacations or other commitments that conflict with the program (this might include summer science workshops).
