Application Availability

Fall 2018 is the next term you can apply for the Traditional Program. The application will be available in mid-December.


Incoming freshman applicants are not eligible to submit the School of Nursing NursingCAS application. The Traditional Nursing Program is an upper-division program that consists of two years of prerequisite courses and two years of nursing curriculum. Once students have completed most of the prerequisite courses, they may apply directly to the School of Nursing (typically during thier sophomore year in college). Contact the UB Office of Admissions to learn more about the Freshman Application.


Current UB Students only need to submit the NursingCAS application. If you have any transfer coursework or test credit, make sure your HUB student center reflects all transfer credit. Click here for directions on how to check your transfer credits in HUB.


If you are not currently attending UB as a degree-seeking student, you must apply to both the University at Buffalo and the School of Nursing by submitting two applications (UB application and NursingCAS application) and official transcripts from all schools attended. Click here to submit the UB transfer or re-entry application. We recommend that you submit your UB application and official transcripts early to ensure sufficient time to evaluate your courses. Admission to the University at Buffalo does not guarantee admission to the School of Nursing Traditional Program.
