EOP Transfer Eligibility
To be eligible to transfer to EOP at Binghamton, you must have been admitted through your current college's or university's opportunity program (i.e., College Discovery, EOP, HEOP or SEEK). Interested students can submit an application through the Common or SUNY Application.
- If you currently attend a SUNY community college that doesn't offer EOP, you will need to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to find out your eligibility.
- All applicants are required to submit the EOP Transfer Verification form. You may be asked to submit financial documentation for review.
Admissions decisions are made by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
EOP Transfer Orientation
EOP transfers who have accepted their admission to Binghamton University will be contacted by the EOP Transfer Coordinator who will make them aware of the EOP specific transfer orientation dates for transfers accepted into Harpur, and the professional schools (i.e. Decker, SOM etc.). Students will receive communications primarily to their Binghamton University email regarding upcoming events about EOP. Students should check this email frequently!
