Binghamton is committed to the success of its students and provides advising, academic and language support to help students succeed.

Submit Financial Support Documents
International students planning to attend with an F-1 or J-1 visa will be required to submit proof of financial support.

International Student Financial Statement containing the signature of any relevant sponsors.

The Office of International Student and Scholar Services will issue the I-20 or DS-2019 form once a student has been admitted and has submitted financial support documents.

Binghamton requires all students to complete an English placement exam during Orientation. This is a diagnostic exam testing students in listening, reading and writing. If results of this examination indicate the student would benefit from additional English language support, the student will be required to take a minimum of one ESL course during the fall semester. ESL courses can be taken along with other university courses and don't require any additional cost.
