In accordance with New York State Public Health Law, UB requires that all incoming students 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.
New UB students matriculating into a program will not be allowed to enroll in classes until they have fulfilled these requirements.
Make a list of the courses you plan to take, along with the course registration numbers. Registration numbers are available online and listed under the HUB Student Center in MyUB. Discuss your options with your assigned faculty advisor.
If you need to take undergraduate courses while in your graduate program, you need to fill out this form and get appropriate approval to register for the course(s).

If you wish to park on university campuses, you are required to register your motor vehicles annually with Parking and Transportation Services. Registration is fast and easy online. Student parking is by permit only, which can be obtained on MyUB. We strongly encourage you to obtain a parking permit before you arrive on campus for classes.
You can find information online about all parking and transportation related matters, including bus and shuttle schedules, maps and directions.
Once you have registered for classes, you can get your UB Card. You will need your UB Card to access certain university services, such as the library and GSE computer labs. You will need a photo ID, such as a driver's license or passport.
The UB Card office is located in 228 Student Union on the North Campus. Please visit the UB Card website to access their hours of operation.
Getting your card before you begin classes is not required, but it's highly recommended.
