This step-by-step guide will help new social work students understand and navigate the process of successfully getting started at the UB School of Social Work. 

On this page:

Former UB students may be able to skip a few steps, as they were previously completed.

First: Let us know you're coming!

Second: Get ready to enroll

The next group of steps can be completed simultaneously. Please be sure to complete all steps as soon as possible, as not doing so will delay your registration.

*You must complete the step with the (*) before you can register for classes. The other steps in the second section can be completed before or after you are registered.

Third: Register for classes

Note: You will not be able to register until you have completed the step above with the (*), enrolled in DUO two-step verification, and all holds have been removed from your account.

Online Traditional MSW students will have a registration hold until they attend the mandatory orientation. This hold will be lifted and you can register for classes after orientation has been completed. Seats will be reserved in the required courses for you.
