Articulation Request Process

If you have course work from a previous institution that does not appear in the TAURUS Course Equivalency Guide and feel it might work towards your major degree or UB Curriculum requirements, you should submit a course articulation request. Depending on your student status at UB, enter your request(s) through one of the following methods.

Newly admitted or current UB students

Students with a UB person number can login to the TAURUS Articulation Request System to place their request(s), using their UBIT name and password.

For Non-UB students and/or users without a person number

Please submit request(s) through the Guest System.

If you are admitted to the University at Buffalo, but do not know your UBIT name and/or password, please contact the UBIT Help Center for assistance.

Requests are sent to the appropriate academic department for review. TAURUS only handles the process of sending the request and processing the final decision in the TAURUS course equivalency guide. This process can take an estimated 10-15 business days to complete. The time frame can vary depending on the time of year. We do not guarantee requests will be complete by a specific date or deadline (i.e. registration, drop/add, etc.).

Students should always meet with their academic advisor prior to submitting any requests, to make sure course articulation is necessary.

Any discrepancies with a current articulation decision listed in the TAURUS equivalency guide must be brought directly to the appropriate academic department that made the decision.

TAURUS holds the right to deny any request if the proper rules and guidelines are not followed.
