A Best Value
Binghamton University offers an elite education and, because it's public, at a fraction of the cost of U.S. private schools. In fact, Binghamton is a top 5 best value in the USA among public colleges (Kiplinger's Personal Finance Magazine and The Princeton Review, 2014). International students must submit documentation of sufficient funds to cover educational and living expenses for the duration of study, as financial aid is unavailable.
