Transition and TRANSFERmation Summit

Our Transition and (Transfer)mation Summit is your opportunity to engage with other new transfer students, get a jump start on your career development, and begin to get acclimated to Binghamton University and the local community.

Our summit will be a half-day event  starting at 10:00am on Sunday, January 14th. Those students who live on campus will be allowed to move in on either Friday the 12th (for those needing to attend Orientation on Saturday) or Saturday the 13th.   As a result of participating in the summit, students will:

  • Gain a vast knowledge of academic, social/emotional and career resources available to them on the Binghamton University campus
  • Start to create a sense of belonging on campus and within the greater Binghamton Community 
  • Gain a deeper understanding of their career exploration and potential career paths 

Registration is capped at 75 students. If more than75 register, we will utilize a waiting list based on when the student registered. Register online

NOTE:Registration will be open until January 2nd, 2024.
