Academic Advising

You will receive comprehensive advising from SUNY Broome academic advisors in making your course schedules. Students enrolled in The Binghamton Advantage Program will also receive academic advising to help in identifying and developing academic goals, assuring a successful completion and transfer of SUNY Broome coursework and a smooth transition to Binghamton University to attain a bachelor's degree.

For more information, please visit the Academic Advising website, here>

Academic standing

Satisfactory progress toward a degree is determined by achieving a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or better, which is required to graduate. At the end of each fall and spring semester, academic standing is reviewed. Failure to achieve a 2.00 cumulative GPA by the end of a fall or spring semester will result in academic "probation."

Students who do not earn a 2.00 cumulative GPA in a subsequent semester may be subject to suspension (dismissal) from the BAP program. This would mean that the student would be withdrawn from the program and would no longer be able to live on the Binghamton campus. However, students would have the option of continuing their studies at SUNY Broome.
