Students at UB's Orientation

Step 1: Complete Orientation Data Form

Students starting in Fall 2018 will complete the orientation data form in late March. Please check back then.

Your orientation data form gives your academic advisor detailed information about your academic background, interests and concerns. They will use the information you provide to help you begin your academic planning at UB and develop a preliminary course schedule. You will also choose the dates of your orientation session and register your family for our separate Parent and Family Orientation program that runs at the same time as your student orientation program.

It is very important that you complete the data form entirely, including the questions regarding any AP and/or currently enrolled or recently completed college courses, as this will assist your academic advisor with helping you to plan your semester schedule properly.

After you complete and submit your orientation data form, you will receive a confirmation email to the email address you selected to use. If you don’t see it within 5 minutes, check your spam folder.
