Health Holds

If you have a health hold preventing registration, please follow the instructions on the Decker Student Health Services New Student Information page to get your hold lifted. 

Credit Limits

Students may register for up to 4 credit hours in the 2023 Winter Session.

Cancellation of Courses

Because of the regulations governing the Winter Session, courses that do not meet the minimum enrollment targets are ordinarily canceled. The Winter Session Office cannot guarantee that every course listed in the BU Brain schedule of classes will actually be taught.

Student Complaint Policy

Students wishing to file a complaint should follow the procedures outlined in the University Bulletin under "Academic Grievance Procedures".  Students taking courses through a distance-learning format may also file a complaint with their home state agency.  The State Higher Education Executive Office (SHEEO) has provided a directory of student complaint information by state and agency.

Auditing a Course

Students may not audit courses in the Winter Session.

General Policies and Procedures

For further details on general academic policies that may be relevant to you, Undergraduate students can refer to the Office of the Provost Website and Graduate students can refer to the Graduate School Manual.

Dining Services

Binghamton University Dining Services will have at least one Residential Dining center serving our community from the first day of the fall semester through the end of spring exams for all our students. So that our employees can spend holidays with their families, we will not operate on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day. We will also be opening some retail outlets as the business warrants during school breaks. You may use any meal plan at any open location. Check out What’s Open Now for the hours and location during breaks.

We will close fall resident meal plans (A-F) and commuter semester meal plans in January during winter session for at least a 24-hour period to update our system. As the winter break approaches, we will provide more information with the date for the closing of the fall plans as well as the opening of the spring plans at The $25 Plan and the Commuter Annual Plan remain open between the fall and spring semesters.

For all things dining, visit and follow @Bingcampusfood on all social platforms.
