The lists below are to be used as a guide for your first few steps in enrolling in our programs. If you have questions please contact the Office of Student Services. Note that first-year/transfer/intended are admitted by the University Admissions Office and not processed through the Office of Student Services.
If you wish to accept your admission, you must complete your statement of intent form. Failure to return the intent form by the deadline will result in a forfeiture of your acceptance to the Traditional Nursing program.
The School of Nursing requires all official non-UB transcripts be submitted to our office. You may submit transcripts electronically by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or you may mail official transcripts to:
Office of Undergraduate Admissions
12 Capen Hall, University at Buffalo
Buffalo, NY 14260
Note: Preferred method of delivery is electronic.
Failure to send official transcripts will delay your registration.
For new transfer or re-entry students, admission to the Traditional Program is contingent upon acceptance to the University at Buffalo as a matriculated student. UB transfer or re-entry applicants will receive their UB decision shortly if they have not received it already.
New transfer students must submit a $150 tuition deposit to the University Admissions Office by May 1. You may submit your deposit via the Admissions Office deposit page.
UB deposits are not required for re-entry applicants.
Complete the American Heart Association Basic Life Support Course for Health Providers (BLS) that includes a face to face demonstration of skill. Visit the UB Recreation Services page for BLS course information. The First Aid component is not required. Students will be able to upload a copy (front and back) of their BLS certification in UBlearns/Blackboard.
In accordance with New York State Public Health Law, UB requires that all students (undergraduate, graduate and professional) born on or after Jan. 1, 1957, provide proof of immunity against measles, mumps and rubella. The state also requires that all students receive information about meningococcal disease and have made an informed decision about whether or not to receive immunization against meningococcal disease. UB students will not be allowed to register for classes until they have fulfilled these requirements.
In addition to fulfilling the standard requirements — measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) as well as meningitis information — students in health-related programs must provide additional documentation. You are required to submit the AIR form and upload it to the Traditional UB Learns group. Health Services in Michael Hall must also receive a copy.
You can register for courses by logging into your HUB Student Center. To get to your HUB Student Center, log in to MyUB, and then click the “HUB Student Center” tab. Additional instructions can be found on the Office of the Registrar Register for Classes page.
You do not need an advisement appointment and all the seats have been reserved for you. When your holds have been removed, you may register.
Review the General Education UB Curriculum and University Unit Requirements for graduation on your academic advising report available through your HUB student center. Students with too few college credit hours will be required to complete additional undergraduate credits prior to graduation beyond the required Traditional program courses. The General Education UB Curriculum requirements must also be met before graduating from UB. Students with a previous Bachelor’s degree are waived from the General Education UB Curriculum requirements.
In the field of nursing, communication is an important skill, as it allows nurses to understand patient needs and helps to ensure the delivery of safe care.
Prior to starting the program, admitted non-native English speakers will be required to take the SPEAK (Speaking Proficiency English Assessment Kit) test unless they have attended an English-speaking high school for four or more years; however, it is highly recommended that all non-native English speakers take the SPEAK test.
Students who do not meet minimum score of 50 will be required to participate in a simulated patient encounter in an effort to further evaluate English comprehension and usage. In addition, students will be linked with a Student Services staff member to discuss plans for utilizing support services and participating in activities that may help with the improvement of communication skills.
The SPEAK test is administered by the UB English Language Institute. Please visit the UB SPEAK test page for the SPEAK test schedule and fee information.
Please notify SON Office of Student Services if this applies to you.
