What Students Are Saying

Course work depends upon your major. For the most part, since Binghamton is such a prestigious university, there is a lot of work to be done. But, if you were accepted here, you can more than likely handle all that is thrown at you. And if you find yourself struggling, there are plenty of resources for you on campus such as the Writing Center, Discovery Advisors, tutors, etc, that can all help you out.

The academics depend on what school you apply to. There's nursing school, engineering school, Harpur (which is liberal arts), SOM (business), etc.
The intro science classes is difficult, each teacher is different but it'll all come down to how much you study.
Sharon from NYC
School is top ranked SUNY school and generally widely accepted as one of the best public schools in northeast.
Nick from Delmar, NY
It's tough, but not impossible. I never found it competitive in my experience, but I hear that the premed majors can be. Study and do your work and you should be fine. Since the classes are 4 credits instead of the traditional three, you only need 4 classes to take 16 credits a semester.

The academic rigor depends on the courses being taken. The math and science and economic courses are very rigorous compared to some other humanity courses.
jocelyn from Scarsdale, NY
The ivy of SUNY's, Binghamton is quite challenging in nearly all courses. Take your grades seriously because they are your future and Binghamton is not an easy school. Being someone who never studied for tests in high school, I've never studied more than I have at Binghamton.
