Additional Resources

Academic Advising

Help the student become an independent, self-confident decision maker, able to solve problems that arise in pursuit of their educational goals.

Tutoring and Academic Support Services

Tutoring and Academic Support Services (TASS) helps undergraduate students raise the bar on their classroom performance by providing academic coaching and tutoring. Seek support early in the semester so you're familiar with where to go later on. Build proactive habits from the start! 

Explore Career Communities

Career Communities give you personalized feeds, resources and events based on your interests, not your major. Be a part of a community (or three) that connects you with alumni, employers and other UB students with the same interests. It’s okay to not know where you want to be after college, but it is never too early to start exploring. Explore career communities > > >
