As an accepted student, you are joining an extraordinary community that values the learning process and the learner.
All new students will receive an “Intent to Enroll” form by email from the law school's Office of Admissions by mid-May, unless admitted thereafter. Completion and submission of this form is the final step in accepting our offer of admission. Failure to submit this form will result in a forfeiture of your seat.
All newly enrolling students are required to send a final copy of their baccalaureate degree-noted transcript to the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) by July 15. The Transcript Request Form can be generated in your LSAC.org account. Failure to submit your final transcript will result in a registration hold and, ultimately, removal from the law school.
Please be sure to email the Office of Admissions if your degree will not be conferred by July 15.
All students must provide an official record of their measles, mumps and rubella immunity — and meet the meningitis requirements and have cleared all other holds on your record — before registering for classes. Specifically, all incoming students (undergraduate, graduate and professional) born on or after January 1, 1957 must: 1) Provide proof of immunity against measles, mumps and rubella; and 2) Receive information about meningococcal disease, and make an informed decision about whether or not to receive immunization against meningococcal disease.

After you have access to both your Person Number and UBITName, you will receive an email with your One-Time Password. (If you are a former University at Buffalo student, you will not receive a single-use password. If you don’t remember your old password, contact the UB CIT Help Desk at 716-645-3542). Once you receive your One-Time Password you will need to Activate Your UBITName. Doing so will grant you access to a vast array of campus services, including MyUB (the University’s web portal) and UBmail.
Your UB Card is your official University at Buffalo ID. You will be eligible for a UB Card once you have been registered for courses. The cost of the card is $20, which will be charged to your University Account. To avoid long lines, we recommend obtaining your UB Card prior to law school orientation.
The UB Card Office has two locations on campus. Call in advance for hours of operation.
Student Union, Room 228
Harriman Hall, Suite 104
