Academic Support Services

From day one, all first-year students are paired with an academic advisor to help them build their first semester around a learning community with three classes and a group of 20 students. Upper-class students serve as peer mentors, and classes are taught by excellent faculty, including the president and provost.

  • The Academic Advising Center reaches out to students to ensure a smooth transition to college and sets them on a path to graduate on time. Students benefit from strong faculty–student collaboration in which they receive guidance on majors, minors, and general core courses.
  • The Student Support Services Program (SSS), funded by the Federal TRIO Programs, is designed to identify and provide services to a selective group of college students who meet eligibility criteria. All of our services are available at no cost with the intent of assisting students in accomplishing their goal of graduating from UB.
  • The Tutoring & Learning Center offers professional and peer tutors in individual or group settings and can provide assistance for writing, study skills, subject-specific tutoring, and more. The Center is available to all undergraduate UB students looking for assistance with courses and supports classroom instruction by providing valuable resources.
