Undergraduate Finances

A University at Buffalo education is an excellent value. As a public university, our tuition is only a fraction of the cost of attending a private college or university of comparable quality and opportunity.

Financial Aid

Financing an education may seem like a daunting task.  The University at Buffalo Financial Aid Office provides assistance navigating this process by offering numerous resources along with financial aid advisors to guide students and their families. 


The UB School of Nursing attracts academically talented students from across the country. A number of small scholarships are offered to undergraduate students who have been admitted to the one of the three upper division nursing programs. Students who wish to be considered for a scholarship must complete the scholarship application when applying to one of the programs.
