Becoming a Human Factors and Ergonomics Engineering Minor Student

Becoming a University at Buffalo Student

Admission to UB is based on a holistic review. We consider high school average, class rank (where applicable), strength of the high school academic record and SAT or ACT scores, if applicable. UB supports SUNY’s decision to temporarily suspend SAT and ACT requirements for admissions for the 2021-22 academic year. This temporary change of admissions eligibility requirements applies to the spring 2021, fall 2021 and spring 2022 cycles. A personal essay, recommendations, documented creative talent, demonstrated leadership, community service and special circumstances are also considered.

The following is not required for admission, but is suggested as adequate preparation for university-level coursework:

  • Four years of English (with a substantial writing component).
  • Four years of social studies.
  • Three years of college-preparatory science.
  • Three years of a second language.
  • Three years of college-preparatory mathematics.

Current UB Students Applying to the Program

Students must be matriculated at the University at Buffalo, in good standing, and pursing a major in order to apply for a minor in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.

Admission to the Human Factors and Ergonomics Engineering Minor requires:

  1. Academic good standing within an approved major at the University at Buffalo.
    Note: Students who left the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences in poor academic standing are not eligible to apply for this minor until they have completed 30 credits in a new (non-SEAS) major.
  2. Submission of the SEAS Major/Minor Change Application by November 15 for Spring admission and by March 15 for Fall admission. Students who apply after this deadline will be considered on a space-available basis.
  3. Completion of a total of 45 credit hours (at UB or elsewhere). Note that students may apply to the program while registered in courses that will bring them to 45 total credit hours.
  4. Minimum overall and UB cumulative GPAs of 2.500. Admission will be limited to 25 students per year, and therefore the GPAs of admitted students may be higher. When demand exceeds capacity, the overall academic history of applicants will be considered in admission decisions.
