You’ve been accepted into the Professional MBA Program. Congratulations! What’s next?

Take a little time to relax and enjoy your accomplishment and then there are a few things that need to be done before you start classes.

Soon after acceptance, you will receive an email regarding the course selection process. You will be given a list of course options with instructions for submission. The PMBA staff will register you for your courses.

  1. Person Number: Your UB person number and your UB IT name can be found by logging back into your application and checking the status tab. Your person number will be required on many forms that you will need to complete throughout the program.
  2. UB email: Learn more about your email account and how to activate it.  This link will help you claim your UBIT name and create your online directory, which needs to be done prior to setting up your email account.
  3. Deposit: To reserve your seat in the PMBA class of 2018, you will need to pay a $250 deposit toward your fall tuition. Your deposit should be paid prior to orientation by mailing either a check or money order, payable to the University at Buffalo, to the PMBA Office or with a credit card on the epay website.
  4. Health Form: You will not be registered for classes until a health form is completed and received by Health Services. Your UB person number must be listed on the form to ensure timely processing.

To be completed after registration

  • UB ID cards:  Every student must have a UB ID card. You may obtain your card online or in person. The UB Card Office is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
  • Parking Permits:  You do not need a parking permit for evening classes as the parking lots are open to anyone after 3 p.m. However, you may find that there are times that you want or need to be on campus during the regular business day. We suggest that every student request a parking permit. Parking permits can only be ordered online. When you fill out the form, request that the permit be picked up at North Campus.
  • Delivery/Pick up of ID Cards and Parking Permits:  Order both before January 18, notify the PMBA office by email ( and they will be available for you to pick with your textbooks and course materials on the first night of classes.
