Admission to UB is based on a holistic review. We consider high school average, class rank (where applicable), SAT or ACT scores and strength of the high school academic record. A personal essay, recommendations, documented creative talent, demonstrated leadership, community service and special circumstances are also considered. For the 2018 admitted freshman class, UB reported an average ACT score of 25-30 and an average SAT score of 1190-1350. The average GPA ranged from 91-96.

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.

Transfer Admission to the Program

Transfer students intended into the biochemistry program will be required to complete a series of pre-requisite courses in order to be considered for admission into the program. Transfer work will be evaluated by their advisor to determine standing in the program as either an intended or approved student. Students are expected to work closely with their advisor to be sure they are on track for acceptance into the major and a timely graduation.
