Check Your UB Email

It is your responsibility to check your UB email. If you request a waiver and it is denied, your notification will arrive via email. In addition, the University no longer generates a paper tuition statement. Your Student Account Statement is by eBill only. Failure to view your eBill details will not be accepted as a reason to waive the insurance charge after the published deadline.
