  • Making a successful transition to the university.
  • Connecting to a full range of UB resources using Navigate.
  • Utilizing important academic services, including Tutoring and Academic Support.
  • Developing an appropriate academic plan for timely graduation based upon demonstrated academic abilities, personal interests and expressed goals.
  • Engaging in exploration of career goals related to personal interests and area of study.
  • Continuously assessing academic progress towards meeting stated goals, clarify potential avenues to reach those goals, and make appropriate adjustments as necessary.
  • Engaging in experiential learning, research, and creative activities designed to complement students’ overall undergraduate experience and career preparation.

All UB students are assigned a professional academic advisor based upon their major and/or affiliation with a special program. Students are encouraged to meet with their advisor early and often—at least once a semester until graduation.
