Paying for College

Students in Allison Zorzie Shaw's communications class, Baldy Hall.

A college education is an investment in your future.

The College of Arts and Sciences is committed to producing graduates hampered by as little debt as possible. Your success is our success.

University Funding and Financial Aid

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.
