The University at Buffalo offers students an excellent education at a cost that is more affordable than most other major research universities. The State of New York established a predictable tuition plan for SUNY. In support of this tuition agreement, the University at Buffalo has developed a strategic plan which directs revenues to initiatives which will positively impact the student experience by emphasizing academic quality, student success, and affordability.
The University at Buffalo offers students an excellent education at a cost that is more affordable than most other major research universities. As our costs rise, and in recognition of students’ and families’ need to plan for college, the university sought a tuition agreement which would make costs transparent and enable us to plan for the outstanding educational experience that our students expect and that we wish to deliver.
In 2011, the State of New York established a predictable tuition plan for SUNY and CUNY campuses. The plan enables the University at Buffalo to raise additional revenues that directly benefit students through a new Academic Excellence and Success fee. It also limits increases to tuition for out-of-state students to no more than 10 percent annually. Approval of the fee and annual out-of-state tuition amounts is dependent upon an annual review of the university's plan for improving the educational experience for students.
In addition to tuition and fees charged by the University, DDS and most Advanced Education programs have program-specific fees and requirements.
DDS students may refer to the following Estimated Expenses DDS document, which is updated as changes occur:
When you register, you assume responsibility for paying all tuition and fees associated with your enrollment/registration. You must pay even if you did not attend a single class unless you have dropped or resigned your courses according to the published deadlines. This applies to those who are withdrawing from the University OR those who have fallen below full-time status.
Note: If you have received Title IV financial aid (Pell, Perkins, SEOG, Direct Loans) for the semester you resign, you should examine the Policy Statement for the Adjustment of Financial Aid Due to Discontinuance of Study.
