Becoming a "street smart" student who knows how to navigate and maximize the college experience takes some time and effort. However, you will be richly rewarded if you make it your job to learn the system. You will quickly learn that not knowing something is not a good excuse - you are expected to know!
The following tips highlight the best advice of current students, UB staff, and faculty for students at all points in their college career. If you are just entering college, you should also review the tips about how college is different from high school.
Working With Faculty - meeting with faculty outside the classroom can enhance your undergraduate experience, view the sample questions and begin a conversation with your professor today
Developing an Academic Plan - short, medium and long term academic planning that will take you through graduation
Staying on Track - information and instructions on registration, drop/add, withdrawal, leave of absence, holds (checkstops) and units (credit hours)
