Academic Advisement

Our team will help you understand your degree program, requirements and policies, and provide you with the resources and tools you need to achieve academic success.

Meet the Undergraduate Programs Team

You are assigned to an academic advisor in the School of Management based on the first letter of your last name.  First-year students are assigned to our first-year coordinator/advisor until the first semester is completed at UB and will transition to an assigned advisor towards the middle of their second semester. Student service hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to Noon, 1 to 4:30 p.m.
