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:

Incoming fall freshmen entering UB from high school are admitted to the combined BS/PharmD program via the application for undergraduate admission. Students will apply directly to the PharmD Doctor of Pharmacy degree following their second year of study at UB via PharmCAS. Visit the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences for details.
Transfer students may be considered for this combined degree program on a case-by-case basis.
Students should declare the combined Pharmaceutical Sciences BS/Pharmacy PharmD major before December 31 of the first fall semester freshman year.
