Post-MBA Student Materials

After you've been accepted to take post-MBA courses, what's next?

Your UB person number, which is also your student ID number, and your UB IT Name can be found by logging back into your application and checking the status tab (typically two days after acceptance). Your person number will be required on many forms that you will need to complete while studying at UB.

Immunization requirements

In accordance with New York State Public Health Law, UB requires that all students (undergraduate, graduate, professional) born on or after January 1, 1957, must provide proof of immunity against measles, mumps and rubella. The state also requires that all students receive information about meningococcal disease and have made an informed decision about whether or not to receive immunization against meningococcal disease.

UB students will not be allowed to register for classes until they have fulfilled these requirements.

  • Students new to UB - You will not be registered for classes until the health form is completed and received by Health Services.
  • Returning UB students - If you have attended UB previously, please call Health Services at 716-829-3316 to verify that your records are in compliance. Please check out their website for contact information.

Once you have sent your health form to the Health Services office or contacted them to verify that your account is in compliance, send an email to the the EMBA/PMBA office.

You will be notified by the EMBA/PMBA office via mail when your registration is complete.

To be completed after registration

  • Students new to UB will receive an email with a one-time use password and directions to claim their email account. Returning students must contact CIT to have their account reactivated. 
  • You do not need a parking permit for evening classes since the parking lots are open for anyone after 3 p.m., however, you may find that there are times that you want or need to be campus during the regular business day. We suggest that every student request a parking permit. Parking permits can be ordered online. When you fill out the form, request that the permit be picked up at North Campus. Complete the application and notify this office and we will pick it up for you.
  • Every student must obtain 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. Just as with your parking permit, let the PMBA Office know when you’ve submitted this application and we will handle the pickup for you. ID cards will be handed out in the PMBA Office, 108 Jacobs Management Center. Be sure to have your license with you for pickup.
