Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.77 Average Rating
This is a premier state university, I think the tuition price isn't good but isn't bad either but of course it'd be great if college was free... =]
Wendy from Brooklyn, NY
DEFINITELY worth what you are paying for. Sometimes I find myself not being satisfied with the quality of certain small things, such as, a lack of soccer balls for the club team but when I think about how much I am paying compared to others it is a big difference.
Dana from New York, NY
Binghamton is worth the money and then some. I honestly could not imagine having a better college experience anywhere else, and thats the most important thing. Academically it's just as good as any private school of greater cost and socially it surpasses them.
Christina
For the quality of education and the party life, you can't find a cheaper University. It's a private school education, party school social life, and SUNY price.
Louis from Brooklyn, NY
For all that it has to offer, plus its fantastic reputation and the phenomenal education you receive, Binghamton University is a great value. It has been rated as a Best Value by Princeton Review and many other prestigious organizations. This value is even greater if you are an in-state student who qualifies for the in-state tuition. However, the value is great for all students.
Lauren from Staten Island, NY
Absolutely. Binghamton's done to death slogan is the public ivy after all. Even as an out of state student, the tuition I am paying isn't exorbitant, compared to what it would be had I been an out of state student in another state's public university. Still, college is college, and it can get pricey.
Rebecca from Morganville, NJ
Personally, I think this is a great school. There's so many clubs, a nature preserve, different dorms, and courses for you to take. The school has a bus system (called OCCT) that takes you from campus to stores like Walmart, Wegman, Target, Oakdale Mall, the AMC movie theater, Buffet Star.
Sharon from NYC
Top rated SUNY school with the cost of a public school and reputation for excellence.
Nick from Delmar, NY
Ivy league worthy education for a public school price.
Anon
I am in a very competitive school for the price of a state school. The value is extremely beneficial since I will not be owing money when I graduate. For today's cost of higher education, one needs to seriously look at Binghamton University.
