Binghamton Advantage Program

The Binghamton Advantage Program (BAP) is a joint admissions program between Binghamton University and SUNY Broome Community College. Students live on the Binghamton University campus while taking classes at SUNY Broome with an opportunity to transfer to Binghamton after one or two years.

The last cohort of BAP students were admitted in the fall of 2023. The program will continue to support these students through the end of the 2023–24 academic year with the intent that they successfully transfer to Binghamton University in spring 2024 or fall 2024.

Students currently enrolled in the program now will be eligible to transfer to Binghamton University early for the spring 2024 semester if they maintain at least a 2.7 GPA at SUNY Broome for the fall semester.

The intent behind the decision is to facilitate current BAP students transferring to Binghamton earlier than initially expected. Binghamton University has significantly expanded support and programming for transfer students over the past year, including the early arrival TRANSFERmation Summit offered in August and January each year. Former BAP students will continue to receive a high level of individualized support once matriculated.
