FRI Enrollment Process
Because the 2015-16 academic year is the second year of the Freshman Research Immersion (FRI) program, with space limited to just 150 students, the program is currently by invitation only and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Incoming undergraduate students invited to enroll in the FRI program will receive a formal invitation from Undergraduate Admissions to enroll and should respond to Binghamton University via an online registration form.
Since space in the FRI program is limited, we cannot guarantee that all students invited will be able to participate. Admission to the FRI program is guaranteed to those students that have confirmed their intent to participate in the program by paying the Binghamton University enrollment deposit before the FRI program fills.
We anticipate that the FRI program will fill quickly, so depositing early is recommended, and should be done no later than May 1. Details on how to pay your enrollment deposit will be provided when reserving your spot in the program.
