Finish in Four
Finish in 4 is an initiative that demonstrates the university’s commitment to helping students complete their undergraduate degree in four years. New, first-time freshmen* entering in the fall term only have the option of taking a Pledge to adhere to the behaviors and practices that contribute to academic success and timely degree completion. UB pledges to provide students with the courses, resources and guidance needed to achieve this goal. If a student, who takes the Pledge, fulfills all requirements of the Pledge and still cannot graduate in four years, the university will provide him/her the opportunity to complete the UB course(s) required for the degree (primary academic plan only) free of any tuition and comprehensive fee charges or honor a course waiver or substitution.
*The only exceptions are students entering into programs that include a dual/combined degree, graduate degree or advanced professional degree such as Doctor of Pharmacy; combined Occupational Therapy BS/MS; or combined Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Dental Surgery degrees.
