Apply to the University Honors College - Spring Deadline (March 1)

If you currently attend UB, or you’re transferring to UB from another college or university, UB welcomes you to apply for the Honors College. Current UB students and transfer students follow the same application process for the Honors College; the only difference is that transfer students must also be admitted to UB.

Deadlines:
  • October 1 for Fall Admission
  • March 1 for Spring Admission
Application Requirements:
  • Completion of at least 45 credit hours at the time of application - Current UB students and transfer students are welcome to apply to Honors once they have at least 45 completed credit hours (including transfer and AP credits). While students can apply any time after that point, we find that our most successful admits apply when they have three or more semesters remaining until graduation.
  • GPA of at least 3.5.
  • One letter of reference from faculty submitted to honors@buffalo.edu. Letters from TAs, graduate students, academic advisors, employers and coaches will not be accepted.
  • Two essays: 1) There is more to being a UB Honors scholar than earning good grades. In 500 words or less, please share what you believe defines an Honors scholar outside of academic achievement and how your undergraduate activities, choices and plans align with that description. & 2) One of the hallmarks of the UB Honors College is our students' intellectual curiosity. In 500 words or less, discuss one current topic/issue that interests you and how it might be approached from multiple perspectives or disciplines.
  • A completed Honors Program Application for Current UB Students and Transfer Students.
