Academic Advising

Academic advising and student services

The Decker School of Nursing Academic Advising and Student Services Office works to ensure students have the resources they need to succeed academically and personally. 

Our professional advising staff works with faculty to help students transition to the rigor of college coursework, make the most out of their time at Binghamton and progress to graduation in a timely fashion. Our peer advisors have extensive training and are regularly available to answer students' questions quickly and efficiently.

The well-being of our students is our top priority, and we strive to provide a safe and comfortable environment.

Taking courses at another institution

If you're considering taking a course at another institution, refer to our transfer equivalency tables:

If you have a felony or child abuse conviction
Students who have a felony or child abuse conviction are advised that their prior criminal history may impede their ability to complete the requirements of the Decker School of Nursing and/or to meet licensure requirements for nursing or advanced practice licensure. If you have concerns about this, you are advised to contact the Decker Academic Advising and Student Services Office, the undergraduate or graduate program director or the Dean's Office. You are required to report felony convictions while enrolled in the Decker School of Nursing as it may change your progression and ability to be placed in a clinical agency. To learn if felony/child abuse convictions will negatively impact your ability for licensure, check with the State Board of Nursing in the state in which you plan to practice.
