Undergraduate Admissions

How To Apply

I am a:

What category of applicant are you?

A freshman applicant is someone currently enrolled in high school. If you've taken college-level credits during high school, you're still considered a freshman. If you haven't taken college-level work since high school graduation, you're also a freshman. Freshman applicants may apply for early action or regular admission decision.

A transfer applicant is someone who graduated from high school and has completed (or will have completed) at least one 3-credit college course prior to the semester of planned enrollment. The completion of one full-time college semester is preferred.

An international applicant is someone who is not a U.S. citizen and who currently holds or will obtain an F or J Visa, to study in the United States as a freshman or transfer student.

A current student is a Binghamton University undergraduate student who wishes to either: 1) transfer to another school within the University or 2) obtain a dual degree.

A returning student is someone who has been out of school for a semester or more and wishes to re-enroll in the same program of study.

A non-degree student (also called non-matriculated or continuing education student) is someone who isn't enrolled in a degree-earning program and is taking courses just to learn, not to earn a degree.
