There are a set of required pre-requisites for the MA program.
All materials must be uploaded in the CSDCAS web portal or sent directly to CSDCAS. Any admission documents or materials received in the department will be disregarded.

Submit your application in the CSDCAS web portal by January 15th
It is the student's responsibility to meet the deadline and to ensure receipt of all materials by CSDCAS. Timely filing will facilitate the admission process. Applicants who fail to submit the online application prior to January 15 will not be eligible to apply to the program until the following year.
NOTE: There is approximately a one-month lag between when application materials arrive at CSDCAS and when they are verified and made available to the Department's Admissions Committee for evaluation (beginning in early February). There is no guarantee that materials verified after early February would be reviewed by the committee.
Applicants must obtain and submit three academic/professional letters of recommendation.
Recommendations must be submitted online through the CSDCAS web portal. The website will provide detailed instructions on how to submit the letters.
Official transcripts should be mailed directly to CSDCAS at the address below:

Non-Canadian International applicants are required to have all transcripts evaluated by World Education Services (WES). Transcripts and the WES evaluation report should be mailed directly to CSDCAS at the address above.
A personal statement or essay is required as part of the online CSDCAS application.
The essay should address topics such as motivation for entering the field, professional goals, and specific interest in attending the program at the University at Buffalo. Applicants are strongly encouraged to use the essay to provide context to their other application materials (e.g., low class grade) or to provide additional information that demonstrates your ability to successfully complete the program that may not be captured through the other application documents.
In the online application, please enter your unofficial TOEFL score.
If admission is recommended by the department, you will be asked to provide your official TOEFL score to the university before formal acceptance.
The GRE is NOT required. However, some students may choose to submit GRE scores to show academic ability not captured through official transcripts.
If you choose to take the GRE, scores are submitted electronically to CSDCAS directly from ETS using the code code: 0760 SUNY University at Buffalo CSDCAS. GREs sent to the Graduate School at UB will not be accepted.
In the online application, students can upload a CV or resume. This is not required.
If admitted to the department, international students will be required to submit the following information to the University. The department's offer of admission is contingent upon final review of the application by UB's International Office of Admissions and determination of eligibility to receive the official documents necessary for a Student Visa.
Two required application fees must be paid prior to review of an application by the Admissions Committee:
1. For CSDCAS: You pay directly to them on your application.
2. For the University at Buffalo: A $75 USD non-refundable application processing fee is due before your application can be reviewed. Payment portal is through UB's Slate application when your CSDCAS application is officially submitted.
