Freshman Admissions

The UB School of Engineering and Applied Sciences Office of Undergraduate Education works closely with the university’s Office of Admissions to review the applications of undergraduate freshmen applying to any of our undergraduate engineering and applied sciences majors. Learn more about Freshman admission by visiting either of their websites, or contacting SEAS or UB Admissions directly.

Transfer Admissions

Transfer admission to any undergraduate major in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences comprises a two-step process:

  1. Students must first apply to and be admitted by the University at Buffalo. 
  2. Students then submit a Supplemental Application that is reviewed by the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.

SUNY Seamless

SUNY Seamless Transfer is a SUNY-wide program intended to make transferring to UB and other SUNY Schools simple and efficient for SUNY students. SUNY has defined courses that SUNY students can take before transferring which will apply to the major at UB and ensure timely graduation.

Information about the Transfer Path for various majors is available from the SUNY Website.

Students can also view the recommended course sequence for SUNY Seamless using the appropriate flowsheet, and using the “Seamless Transfer” tab.

Transfer Articulations

For information about how your college credits will transfer please begin by visiting Will your Credits Transfer? You will be introduced to the university’s transfer articulation system, called TAURUS, which will show you how transfer courses match UB courses and requirements. When you are admitted you will receive a detailed report showing these articulations. Whatever your situation however, an appointment with an engineering advisor can be helpful in interpreting this more fully.

Admission for Current UB Students

UB students in good academic standing may be considered for admission to mechanical or aerospace engineering. For details, see the SEAS Office of Undergraduate Education.
