Information for Current Students


  • Current Undergraduate Students
    An undergraduate degree is many things: It's a statement of ambition. It's evidence of your ability to think beyond the present moment. It's a promise to yourself that you will persevere, no matter the challenges, until you reach or exceed your goals. 
  • Funding Your Degree
    A college education is an investment in your future. When you compare the cost of a UB education to national averages, the value is clear: Our tuition and fees are among the lowest and most competitive in the nation. The College of Arts and Sciences is committed to producing graduates hampered by as little debt as possible. Your success is our success.
  • Experiential Learning
    We believe learning by doing is the key to our students' success both during and after their time at UB. The College of Arts and Sciences encourages students to take advantage of the life-changing opportunities happening around them every day.
  • College Ambassadors
    In a university as large as UB, it's important that students have the opportunity to make connections and build professional relationships from the moment they step on campus. With this in mind, every year the College of Arts and Sciences assembles a group of exceptional students to serve as College Ambassadors.


  • Current Graduate Students
    Choosing to pursue a graduate degree is a demonstration of your passion for knowledge, research and problem-solving. It's a pledge to your peers, professors and – most importantly – yourself, that you will continually strive for academic growth and personal integrity. It's a single step that scales mountains, pushes boundaries and opens doors. It will change your life.
  • Graduate Awards and Fellowships
    Every year, several awards are made available to graduate students within the College of Arts and Sciences. Students who apply for and receive an assistantship remain eligible for these awards.
