How to request official transcripts sent to UB
You must have official transcripts sent to the University at Buffalo Office of Admissions, for any courses taken for college credit from any institution other than the University at Buffalo, even if these were taken during high school. Academic records are maintained at colleges and universities by the office of records or the registrar’s office.
How to request official score reports for exam credit
You must submit official exam score reports for any exams you would like considered for credit awards at UB. Official reports should be sent to the University at Buffalo Office of Admissions. For Advanced Placement (AP) or College Level Examination Program (CLEP) credit requests give the College Board the "SUNY Center Buffalo/School Code 2925." Exam types considered for UB credit are described on the UB undergrad catalog website. Check the exam websites for instructions on how to request an official score report. There is usually a fee charged for a score report. You should designate UB (SUNY Center Buffalo/School Code 2925) if a school code is requested.
