Visiting Student Program

Students enrolled at other institutions may apply to study at UB as visiting students for up to one full year without formally transferring. With approval from their home campus, students receive full credit for approved courses completed at UB. Information about applying and admission criteria may be obtained from the Office of Admissions.

The following rules apply to Visiting Students at UB:

  1. The student may apply for admission as a visitor, specify the courses or program he or she intends to pursue, submit a college transcript and a statement of approved academic leave from the home institution, and have a grade point average comparable to that required by Undergraduate Admissions of incoming transfer students.
  2. The student may enroll at UB upon acceptance for two academic year semesters and either the summer prior to, or after, enrollment under the same conditions as a matriculated student.
  3. A visiting student may apply for admission to UB for baccalaureate study. Upon acceptance, the student’s UB courses will be included in her or his program and considered UB courses for purposes of credits attempted and completed to calculate a grade point average.
