I. Code of Conduct
Binghamton University has a set of “University Expectations” and “Rules of Student
Conduct.” You must acknowledge the Code of Conduct before you register for the first
time, or you will be restricted from registration. Click here to view the student Code of Conduct. This should be done well before registration.
II. Health Requirements
Registration can begin after the university has received documentation of your health
requirements. Information for new students can be found here. Most of the time, students ask their health provider to fax the paperwork to our
health office at 777-2881. There is one part you need to sign, and that is the meningitis
acknowledgement. Fax that separately to the health office.
All students must meet the health requirements or registration is blocked. There are two forms to complete, and both are due before registration. The shorter
form, Part A, is the “Meningitis Information Acknowledgement.” The other form, Part
B, is the “Report of Medical History/MMR” which includes documentation for Measles,
Mumps, and Rubella (MMR). College Link students take less than 12 credits, and do
not need tuberculosis information. Click here for details regarding tuberculin testing and physical examination documentation.
Send or fax the forms to Health Services. Note the form for emergency medical treatment for students under age 18.
Once you have submitted all required health forms and have been cleared for registration,
I recommend that I register you, otherwise you must wait to register with other non-matriculated
students, which will be the Friday before classes start for the term.
IV. Dropping a last course or Withdrawing
Dropping and withdrawing impacts your transcript and refunds.
Know the deadlines for the process and the impact on tuition refunds. In order to obtain a refund, a student must officially withdraw/drop the course(s)
from their record (see the Student Records Office for details) and specifically request
a refund after courses are removed. Click here for more information. NOTE: The academic drop deadline is not related to the deadlines for determining tuition liability.
Most College Link students take one course a term. Dropping that course means you
are withdrawing because you won’t have any classes. Please review the withdrawal procedures
for non-matriculated students here.
If College Link students want to drop a course before the drop deadline or withdraw
after the deadline, they must first contact the College Link Advisors at Binghamton
Please visit the Student Accounts page for more information about residency.
- College Link students are registered through the Harpur Dean's office after we receive
the signed College Link Registration forms. This avoids issues with access code numbers,
timing and unfamiliarly with course restrictions.
- CONFIRMATION OF ENROLLMENT
College Link students must confirm their enrollment after they are registered. Confirm enrollment here. You first need your B# and password.
*You must confirm your enrollment online at BU Brain to avoid course cancellation, even if you have paid.
If we know what course(s) you want, the University will register you for courses,
but only students can confirm enrollment. This confirmation must take place or students
will risk course cancellation.
Summer term students can confirm soon after registration. Fall and winter term students
must wait approximately 2-3 weeks before the term starts.
If you are taking a summer course, payment is due at the time of registration. For
fall and spring terms, you may receive a bill for full time tuition and fees even
if you are not full time.
II. E-Bill Notification:
Student Accounts sends semester E-Bill notifications via email to the STUDENT’S BU
email address. The E-bill notification includes the balance due, the due date, and
a link to access the E-bill statement on-line via QuikPAY.
*If the student would like the billing notification sent to their parents, guardian
or another person, they MUST add that person as an Authorized Payer on his/her QuikPAY account. This is the only way anyone other than the student can
receive electronic E-bill notification. This is also the only way to gain access to
view, print and pay your student's bill.
III. Billing Cycle:
Binghamton University will generate monthly E-bill statements starting in August for
the fall term and in January for the spring term. Students will receive a monthly
E-bill statement via email (issued around the 1st of the month) with a balance due
and a due date if a balance remains from a prior month or if there is new activity
on the account. PLEASE NOTE: It is important to review your QuikPAY account regularly. Check
your BU Email even after you drop a course or withdraw to make sure billing is accurate.
IV. Due Dates & Fees:
If payment is not made in full by the due date on the E-bill statement, the account
is subject to a $30 late fee.
