Undergraduate Degree Application and Conferral
Candidates for bachelor’s degrees must complete a minimum of 120 credit hours, 30 of which must have been completed at the University at Buffalo campus. If you are preparing to graduate (have completed 90 credits) you must Apply for Graduation in your HUB Student Center (via MyUB). You must be in an approved major to apply for a degree.
If you have not been enrolled at UB for at least one semester and now wish to apply for your degree, you must do so via the Application for Degree – Non-HUB Access form (PDF).
The double degree is the concurrent awarding of two different baccalaureate degree types (BS & BA, BA & BFA, MusB & BA, etc). If you intend to receive a double degree, you must complete a minimum of 150 credit hours and must also file the Application for Double Degree (PDF) at least one month prior to conferral. No more than two 300 and 400 level courses taken as requirements for the major in one degree can also be counted as part of the required courses for the other major in the second degree, including required elective credits.
Students applying for Combined degrees must do so via their HUB Student Center. When applying for these degrees it is important that you apply for both the undergraduate and the graduate degrees separately. Students not in the BS/MBA or BA/MSW combined degree program must also file the Application to Candidacy through their department. Combined degree candidates expecting to complete a minor associated with the undergraduate portion of the degree must also Apply for Graduation in your HUB Student Center (via MyUB) listing the minor expected.
Students must Apply for Graduation prior to the published deadline dates listed below:
|Graduation Term||Application Deadline||Conferral Date|
|Fall||October 15||February 1|
|Spring||February 22||June 1|
|Summer||July 15||September 1|
Students are encouraged to Apply for Graduation well before the deadline dates. The status of degree application is available in your HUB Student Center (via MyUB) and your Academic Advisement Report.
Keep Track of Your Progress Towards Your Degree from Your First Day at UB
The best ways to do that is to review your Academic Advisement Report regularly in your HUB Student Center (via MyUB) and contact your advisor for a regular review of your program.
Make sure your transfer courses will be accepted at UB and will not duplicate UB courses. The best way to do that is to check TAURUS to see how your courses will transfer.
How to Apply
Log on to MyUB and click on the tab for your HUB Student Center. Under Academics, click on Apply for Graduation in the drop-down menu. Follow the directions provided.
Double degree candidates (i.e. BA and BS, BA and BFA) must also submit the Application for Double Degree (PDF).
Who to Contact with Your Concerns
If you are not ready to apply for a degree evaluation, make an appointment with an undergraduate advisor. Review your Academic Advisement Report and prepare questions about your intended academic program.
If you have applied for degree evaluation and have any questions at all about the status of your evaluation, call the Office of the Registrar at 716-645-5698.
