Undergraduate Advising

You’ve committed to UB – congratulations!  Not sure where to start?  Your academic advisor is here to help you navigate the academic landscape.

On this page:


All UB students are assigned to a professional academic advising center based upon their major and/or affiliation with a special program. It is recommended that you meet with your advisor at least once a semester. The advisor for pre-pharmacy and pharmaceutical sciences students is Sara Robinson. To locate the advising office for a different academic major, see the academic advising directory

Advisement Tools

When you are not meeting with your advisor, the University at Buffalo and the SPPS Admissions and Advisement Office have developed the following tools to assist you in understanding your progress and help you develop an academic plan.

Peer Mentors

Current PharmD and Pharmaceutical Sciences students are available to chat with prospective and current students. Consider this a great complement to meeting with your academic advisor or mentor.

Student Support

There’s more to being a successful student than just attending class.  Here are additional services available to you as an undergraduate student at UB.

Get Involved

Want to know the secret to student satisfaction and persistence? You guessed it—get involved, early and often! Although not required for the Early Assurance Program, students who apply via PharmCAS should be able to demonstrate their involvement outside the classroom. These on-campus UB offices make it easy for you to find something that interests you and will work within your academic plan:

Course Schedules and Registration

Our office will register new freshman. After the first semester, you will be responsible for registering yourself. In order to become familiar with UB’s student system (HUB) please visit the HUB Student Center and see UB's Web Registration Tutorial. Be sure to complete the Early Assurance Program Prerequisite Courses or PharmCAS Prerequisite Courses.
