At UB, we honor your academic excellence.

Laurie Ziegler

Everyone that has transferred schools can tell you that the process is nerve wracking and filled with some cultures shock. I was fortunate to see a table for the Helen P. Denit Honors Program at my transfer orientation and immediately filled out an application. I felt welcomed into the honors program and it became ... not just something to attend, an extra line on my resume and additional graduation requirements—it was a program that I could be a part of and became my home away from home on campus.

Students transferring to UB from a community college or other four-year university with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or greater are encouraged to apply.

  • are staffed by the University’s best educators.

You'll participate in:

  • field trips
  • events with outside speakers and experts
  • relevant and important projects.
