How to Apply

Future First-year and Transfer Students

The School of Public Health and Health Professions does not undertake a departmental review of applicants to our undergraduate programs initially. If you are admitted to UB and indicated a School of Public Health and Health Professions major, you can take each program's respective pre-requisite coursework. 

Please attempt to determine course equivalencies using the TAURUS website. If your institution is not listed in TAURUS or you have further questions about equivalencies, please email sphhp-oasa@buffalo.edu, and an academic advisor will assist you. Please include unofficial transcripts where possible to speed up your request.
