New Graduate Student Information

The School of Engineering and Applied Sciences hosts a Graduate Orientation and Welcome Series of events for new students so you're prepared for life at UB. These online and in-person events focus on pre-arrival information, finalizing admissions procedures, how to find campus jobs, student services and more.  

These mandatory events give you an opportunity to learn from a variety of speakers and network with the school leadership, industry leaders, working professionals, university senior leadership, faculty, staff, current students and alumni. 

In addition to the SEAS Graduate Orientation and Welcome Series, departments also hold an orientation. Department orientations may be in-person or virtual, depending on your program, and they are also mandatory for new graduate students. 

Details and registration information are emailed to new students before the Fall and Spring semesters. You can also find orientation information in the Admitted Student Portal.

If you have questions about class registration, schedules, or academic holds, we encourage you to contact your department's Graduate Academic Coordinator. For questions about orientation events, contact
