Information for Admitted Students

Course Registration

Course registration information for each of the four semesters at Binghamton University is as follows.

For fall semester sophomore year:
In the spring semester of your freshman year you will be contacted by Binghamton University’s Dual-Diploma Programs office with a course selection survey for the fall semester. The survey will consist of options for courses depending on your curriculum. Based on your choices, class conflicts, and space restrictions, the Dual-Diploma Programs office will create a course schedule for you from the received survey. You will have an opportunity after you arrive in Binghamton to change your schedule during the two week add/drop period.

For spring semester sophomore year:
Approximately mid way through your first semester at Binghamton University you will receive notice of a pre-registration period. During that pre-registration period Dual-Diploma students will be able to create a tentative course schedule by looking at the upcoming semester’s course options. Students will be encouraged to choose three to four alternate courses because there is a 20% enrollment maximum for all DDP students in all university courses. Courses fill up quickly and without alternate choices you may not be registered for the correct number of credits each semester. Once students have selected their courses the Dual-Diploma Programs office will register students based on course availability. Students are able to fine tune their schedule during a period of early registration that typically takes place during the last two weeks of the fall semester and the first two weeks of the spring semester during the add/drop period. Students are encouraged to discuss their academic progress with the Dual-Diploma advisors, but ultimately course schedules are the responsibility of the student. Please make sure all of your payments on the university’s BU Brain website (bubrain.binghamton.edu) have been made prior to pre-registration. If you have any outstanding fines or payments due to Binghamton University you will be unable to be registered. You will have to wait to register for courses until you return to campus the following fall during the add/drop period.

For fall semester senior year:
In the spring semester of your junior year you will be contacted by Binghamton University’s Dual-Diploma Programs office with a course selection survey for the fall semester. This survey will be based on your academic progress and course selection will be limited to those courses that are necessary for you to complete your degree on time. The survey will consist of options for courses depending on your curriculum. Based on your choices, class conflicts, and space restrictions, the Dual-Diploma Programs office will create a schedule from the received survey. Please make sure all of your payments on the university’s BU Brain website (bubrain.binghamton.edu) have been made prior to pre-registration.
