Fall Class Schedules

As UB continues planning campus operations and course delivery for the fall 2020 semester, we are in the process of crafting an updated fall schedule. Students will be able to access their schedule by mid-July. Students should contact their academic advisor with any questions about their fall registration. Returning students should be assured that any updates or changes made to their schedule prior to June 17, 2020, have been saved in the HUB Student Center. The university will communicate to students when the updated fall schedule is available for viewing along with processes for finalizing their registration.
