University Degree Requirements

University Degree Requirements

Students must obtain a minimum of 120 credits whereby at least 30 credits must be completed at UB, per the Academic Residency Requirement policy. In addition, a maximum of the following credit limits are allowed:
•    30 credits of S/U coursework,
•    18 credits of tutorial coursework
•    8 credits of Athletics Activity coursework
•    0 credits of ESL/ULC coursework from among ESL 101, 102, ULC 101, 103, 104, 161, 164, 254
•    6 credits of UE 141

Students must also have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0, both at UB and Overall (transfer GPA plus UB GPA). Courses used beyond the University Undergraduate Limits will not be included in the computation of GPA.

Students must satisfy all requirements of the UB Curriculum (our general education program) and must fulfill all major requirements.

Students continuously enrolled at UB or on an official Leave of Absence from UB are governed by the university requirements (e.g., UB Curriculum) stated in the catalog in effect at the time of their initial matriculation in the university. For example, students who enter the university in fall 2018 and are continuously enrolled through graduation must meet the baccalaureate degree requirements as stated in this 2018-2019 catalog.

Program Requirements

Students continuously enrolled in a particular degree program (major, minor, or concentration) or on an official Leave of Absence from the program are governed by the requirements of that program as stated in the catalog in effect at the time of their initial entrance into the program. For example, students who are accepted into a major during the fall 2019 semester and are continuously enrolled through graduation must meet the requirements for the major as stated in this 2019-2020 catalog.

Either the university or a program may find it necessary to update requirements for students who have been enrolled in the university or in a program for an extended period.

Breaks in Student Enrollment

Students who leave the university or a major degree program for one or more semesters without an official Leave of Absence are governed by the requirements stated in the catalog in effect at the time of their most recent readmission to the university or to the major program.
