How will Orientation work?

FIRST-YEAR BAP STUDENTS may choose from one of four BAP sessions scheduled for the end of June and throughout July. Register through the Orientation checklist.

All BAP sessions take place in person over two days and students will be housed in one of Binghamton's residence halls for the night of Orientation. Day 1 of Orientation will be held at Binghamton University and will be the same as other Binghamton University students. Day 2 will be BAP-specific and will include transportation to SUNY Broome. You will have the opportunity to meet an Orientation Advisor who is a current student as well as some of your future classmates. If you cannot attend one of the dates below, you must contact New Student Programs at 607-777-6393 to discuss your options.
