Transfer Students

Students transferring to UB from other institutions may use courses and credits achieved elsewhere to meet requirements for baccalaureate degrees offered by the department. Courses from other institutions that have been previously evaluated in comparison to UB courses are listed on UB’s course articulation web site ( To fulfill requirements with courses that were completed at other institutions but are not listed on the TAURUS web site, students must obtain approval through a petitioning process overseen by the department’s Director of Undergraduate Studies. Petition forms are available in the Department of Biological Sciences office, 109 Cooke Hall (North Campus). In addition to submitting a petition, the student will be asked to provide supporting documents for transfer courses, such as a catalog description and/or syllabus.
