What is TAURUS?

Transfer Articulation and University Requirements at UB System (TAURUS) is the University at Buffalo’s (UB) articulation website. It displays course articulation approved by UB faculty. TAURUS displays UB’s course equivalency information.

Effective June 28, 2012, TAURUS users will see course equivalency data available in HUB, UB’s current student information system and will search this data with UB software, CEG for TAURUS. We feel CEG is easy to use and think you will also. As always, your questions are welcome by email to TAURUS.

Effective Nov. 1, 2012, Uselect will no longer be available as this information is available through the CEG for TAURUS website.


Using TAURUS: The Transfer Articulation System

Go to TAURUS and search UB’s course equivalencies by choosing one of these links:


  1. Course credits transferred to UB from other academic calendar systems will be converted into semester credits.
  2. Articulation course equivalencies on this web site DO NOT guarantee transfer credit which is calculated for each individual student. However, degree-level course credit from schools listed in TAURUS is transferable to UB.
  3. Students are responsible for UB’s Transfer Credit Policy, published each year in the University at Buffalo Undergraduate Catalog.
  4. Students with SUNY transfer courses may use the SUNY Transfer Credit Appeal Process to petition the UB credit and course equivalencies awarded for these courses.
