Becoming a University at Buffalo Student

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.

Current UB Students Applying to the Program

Students are required to apply to the director of the Korean program for acceptance into the minor. Students may apply to the minor when they have completed the prerequisite courses or during the semester in which they are completed but they are encouraged to discuss their academic plans with the director as early as possible. A minimum GPA of 2.0 in prerequisite and required courses is needed.
