2021-2022 Student Handbook

A Welcome from the President

Dear Student:
I am excited to welcome you to Binghamton University for the 2021-22 academic year. You are part of an exceptionally talented student body that is recognized for its academic abilities, energy and creativity; and I am proud that you chose Binghamton. 

This guide of policies and procedures will acquaint all students—new and returning—about many aspects of Binghamton University. In these pages, you will see rules governing your academic and social life, as well as our Code of Student Conduct. This code, developed with student input and endorsement, provides the model for student interactions on campus and is central to Binghamton's unique culture and community. The code establishes the responsibilities that students have in making this a campus that values integrity, professionalism, respect, and fairness. These responsibilities are especially important this year, as the campus continues to address the COVID-19 pandemic, with an emphasis on respecting the health and safety of others. I ask that you review these rules and the code and abide by them. 

While the coronavirus will result in some adjustments to the academic and social life of the campus, we are doing all we can to offer a true college experience, with a host of activities outside the classroom that add value to your academic work. I urge you to find clubs and organizations that fulfill your interests in research, community service, and cultural expression. Binghamton has something for everyone to make your experience more exciting, fulfilling, and fun. 

Thank you for choosing Binghamton. I hope your year ahead is both challenging and successful. 

Sincerely,

Harvey G. Stenger
President
