General Education Requirements
Students follow the General Education program in effect for the year they matriculate at Binghamton University. For example, students matriculating in Summer 2016, Fall 2016, or Spring 2017 would follow the General Education requirements as stated in the 2016-2017 Bulletin. Generally, a student's catalog year is the same as the academic year in which he or she matriculates at Binghamton University. If you are not sure which requirements apply to you, please contact your school advising office for assistance.
