Step 1: Apply to the University at Buffalo

Incoming freshman or undergraduate transfer applicants who are interested in pursuing study in romance languages must first apply and be accepted to the University at Buffalo. All relevant information, including admissions criteria, the online application, dates and deadlines, and standardized test score requirements, can be found by visiting UB Undergraduate Admissions.

Step 2: Apply to the Major or Minor

Once prerequisites are complete, acceptance into the major, joint major or minor requires an application to the major or minor. Interested students must complete a brief application form and submit a current Academic Advisement Report (AAR), available through HUB

For students who do not wish to submit an online application, paper copies are available from the department office. Completed paper applications and AARs may be submitted by mail or in person (between 8:30am and 5pm) to:

Department of Romance Languages and Literatures
910 Clemens Hall
University at Buffalo, North Campus
Buffalo, NY 14260

Please note: Application is also possible during the semester of the last prerequisite, in which case the department office will hold all paperwork until final grades are posted for the semester.
