Why Sign Up for UB Alert?

- Any UB student, staff or faculty member with a “@buffalo.edu” e-mail account (your UBITName plus “@buffalo.edu”) can subscribe.
- Stay safe and be informed. You’ll always get @buffalo.edu emails, but this way you can add your cellphone or alternate email addresses, such as your Yahoo! or Gmail account.
- It’s free (subscribers may incur text messaging charges depending on their wireless service provider and plan).
This system is designed to send messages to recipients’ cell phones, smartphones and UB email addresses.
You must have a buffalo.edu email account to register for this system. Once you have registered, you can request that text messages be sent to your cell phone or additional email addresses. (Some smartphone, prepay or “minutes” cell phone plans may not work with the emergency notification system. Consult the FAQ to see if you are affected.)
In addition to UB Alert text messaging, emergency messages will be provided to faculty, staff and students using official campus communication channels including this website (emergency.buffalo.edu), the campus-wide UB Alert listserv, UB’s home page, the MyUB portal, UB Now, 716-645-News, the UB Alert Twitter feed and UB Facebook pages. Local television and radio stations may also be contacted by the university to communicate during emergencies or weather-related events.

Posted April 18, 2019 in Did You Know?, HUB Tips
The last day to resign from a 15-week Standard Session Course is Friday, April 19, 2019 by 11:59 p.m. EDT.
Before resigning a course:
- Student should discuss with course instructor
- Student should speak with an academic advisor to discuss the pros and cons of resigning a course.
- Student should consider if h/she will need to register for the course in a future semester. If so, then h/she will want to see if the course is listed among the Course Enrollment Control List. If it is, then a student may need to repeat during a Summer or Winter Session.
How to Resign a Course
Students electing to Resign from a course will log into their HUB Student Center.
- In the HUB Academic section they will select Enroll link.
- They will next be asked to select the semester, or session, for which they want to resign a course.
- For the selected semester, a student will now see a listing of all of the courses in which they are registered. Next to each course there will be a check box. Select the course to be resigned.
- Click the Drop Selected Classes button.
- Click the Finish Dropping button.
- To confirm that the course has been dropped, go to the HUB Academic section and click the View My Grades link.
- Select the appropriate semester/session and find the course. In the Grade Column, you will see that an “R” is listed. A resigned course does not have a grade point value, and therefore is not used in the calculation of your grade point average (gpa).
- If you receive financial aid, a resigned course will be used in the calculation of a student’s Satisfactory Academic Progress.
- Before you resign a course, and if you receive financial aid, discuss implications of resigning a course upon your financial aid eligibility. Go to 1Capen and ask to speak with the next available financial aid advisor.
