Complete a virtual experience to set you up for a successful fall semester.
Transfer Summer Orientation is an important experience at the beginning of your UB journey. Your orientation is designed to get you started with understanding academic responsibilities, planning for out-of-classroom experiences and meeting other UB students. You'll also learn about UB's campuses and the many resources available to you as a new student.
Your orientation program consists of required Online Modules in July and optional on-campus events August 23-24 to prepare for your successful start at UB.
You will register for the program on Step 1: Complete the Orientation Data Form.
Take action on these tasks at least one week before your on-campus orientation.
You are highly encouraged to attend a two-day, on-campus orientation program in August.
