Apply to Graduate Architecture & Planning Programs

The Department of Urban and Regional Planning reviews completed applications for graduate admission on a rolling basis. For fall admission, applications received by March 1 will receive primary consideration for scholarships and admissions. Applications received thereafter are reviewed on a rolling basis, provided space remains in the incoming class.
We invite applications from highly qualified and motivated candidates interested in pursuing a career in research and teaching. Candidates should ideally hold a master’s degree in planning or a related field, and must have a GPA of 3.0 or higher in graduate coursework. International candidates must demonstrate proficiency in English as per standards set by the University at Buffalo. 
Semester tuition and fees charges are available on the Tuition and Fees webpage of the UB Office of Student Accounts.
You can apply online to any of our graduate programs. Your application will be forwarded to the department when you have completed the online application. Once you submit your application online for formal review, you will be provided with a link to our online payment system, where you can pay the application fee.
