Course articulation is when external credit-bearing courses are formally reviewed and approved by faculty for course equivalency at UB. Once a course has been reviewed and approved to be transferred to UB, the Office of the Registrar will create a course articulation, which can be viewed through the Course Equivalency Guide located on the TAURUS website. The benefit of having a course articulated is that it may grant course equivalency that will fulfill specific major and general education requirements. Any course that comes from a regionally accredited institution may articulate for a course at UB. Post-secondary institutions that have other than regional accreditation are reviewed by a case-by-case basis according to the University Transfer Credit Policy.
In recognition of the challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, a number of institutions required or offered students the option of pass/fail or satisfactory/unsatisfactory grading. Pass (TP) and Satisfactory (TS) grades earned in transfer coursework completed in spring 2020 at domestic higher education institutions may be applied towards UB Curriculum and major requirements.
