Official Admissions decisions
You may be notified of our official admission decision via U.S. mail, email or online. Our admissions decisions reflect a thorough review of all applications. Binghamton University doesn't have an admissions appeals process; all decisions are final.
Binghamton University, following guidance from the State University of New York (SUNY), does not require students to be vaccinated for COVID-19 in order to attend Binghamton or live in on-campus housing.
Financial aid award offers
All admitted students, who filed a FAFSA and had it sent to Binghamton University, will receive an e-notification financial aid award offer to the email listed on the FAFSA. The email will be sent from Financial Aid Services in November for spring admission and late February for fall admission.
Our recommended FAFSA filing date is Jan. 1.
Completing the FAFSA allows you to be reviewed for eligibility for several types of federal financial aid including grants, work-study and student loans.
- Beginning early December, you may log into the Binghamton portal (my.binghamton.edu) and check the status of your 2023-24 FAFSA. Make sure we have received it, and review any “unsatisfied” requirements (if applicable). Navigate to BU Brain Self Service, Financial Aid tab, Eligibility section.
- New York state residents: If you did not already submit a Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) application or have questions about the status of your TAP application, visit the HESC website.

First-year or transfer applicants who have been admitted to Binghamton University may request to defer their enrollment for up to one year.
