Whether you are a busy professional looking to supplement your education or a company looking to improve your workforce, we've got you covered.
Our online courses are a convenient and a great way to increase knowledge, improve job skills and expand professional options.
To be assured that any course you take will count toward a degree program, prior to registration, current UB students should speak to their department advisor and/or consult their departmental graduate program handbook.
Non-UB students must first complete a non-degree application using the SEAS Application Management System to register for a UB course. On your application, under "Program Information," select the term you'd like to enroll in and then select "Non-Degree" when asked to select your primary degree level of study. Do not fill out an online non-degree application if you are a current UB graduate student.
Our online courses provide an excellent education at a cost that is more affordable than most other major research universities. See online tuition rates by semester on the university's Student Accounts website.
The University at Buffalo, in conjunction with Open SUNY - the State University of New York, has partnered with Coursera to deliver massive open online courses (MOOCs) across the globe. These non-credit courses allow you to learn the hottest new technologies and don’t require university enrollment.
Coursera was founded in 2012 and has since become the world’s largest open online education provider, reaching 25 million registered users through courses delivered by 200 universities and partners. They feature recorded video lectures, resource materials, assignments and community discussion forums.
