Office of Financial Aid

The University at Buffalo offers a quality and affordable education to all students. The primary responsibility of the cost of a college education rests upon you, the student; however, financial aid programs are designed to assist you in paying for that cost. Our goal is to maximize your opportunities to locate and receive financial aid from multiple sources to cover your finances so that you can concentrate on your academics.

The Financial Aid team works in conjunction with the Student Response Center (SRC) to deliver various services: billing, registration and academic records.
