Updates to SEVP Guidance for Spring 2022
Binghamton University plans to continue full in-person instruction for the spring 2022 semester. We are excited to have most students attending in-person classes in Binghamton. For students who are not able to return in person, the Student and Exchange Visitor Program has indicated that current flexibility related to online classes will continue through the 2021-2022 academic year. If you are a continuing student and concerned that you will not be able to return to in-person classes in the spring, you must discuss registration options with your academic advisor to ensure that you will be meeting academic requirements for your program. You can find detailed information about this guidance on the ISSS FAQ page. That page will continue to be updated to reflect new information and guidance from the U.S. government.
The Academic Calendar for the spring 2022 semester is now available online. Spring classes are scheduled to begin on January 25.
