Financial Aid, Scholarships and Awards

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 UB Department of Economics is committed to producing graduates hampered by as little debt as possible. Your success is our success.

Every year, several awards are made available to undergraduate students in the College of Arts and Sciences, including awards specifically designated for graduates of Buffalo Public High Schools.

Fellowships and scholarships are among the most valuable forms of aid you can receive and are designed to support students who have exceptional academic records and potential, or demonstrate need.

Experience shows that students and families who take the time to understand their options benefit by receiving the maximum amount of eligible aid. The UB Financial Aid team is ready and willing to provide assistance as you navigate this process. 

The Office of Student Accounts provides up-to-date information on tuition and fees by semester. You can also receive walk-in assistance Monday-Friday, 8:30am-4:30pm, at the Student Response Center, 1 Capen, North Campus.
