Winter Session Admission

Confirmation of Enrollment

All registered students (undergraduate and graduate) MUST confirm their Winter Session enrollment via BU Brain Self Service by 4:30 p.m. Monday, December 12, 2016. Students who fail to confirm enrollment by the specified date will be dropped from the course for which they have registered.

Undergraduate

If you’re a current, matriculated Binghamton University undergraduate student:
Simply go to the BU Brain Self Service and register for the Winter Session 2017 course you want, the same way you registered for your fall and spring semester courses. No further application or admission is necessary. Find out more about registering for courses using BU Brain Self Service.

If you’re a former Binghamton University matriculated undergraduate student:

  • If you’re a formerly enrolled Binghamton University degree candidate (matriculated student) who didn’t attend the University during the Spring 2016 and Fall 2016 semester and who hasn’t yet received a bachelor's degree, apply for admission to Winter Session using the Undergraduate Admissions Request for Re-Enrollment Form (139kb, .pdf). You must be formally re-admitted to the University before registering for Winter Session courses; students will be readmitted to the school from which they most recently withdrew.
  • Admissions requirements include fulfilling health requirements and, if you’re an in-state student, completing the New York State Residency Status Application.

If you’re a former Binghamton University non-matriculated undergraduate student, a visiting undergraduate student, or a recent high school graduate who isn’t enrolled in another college/university:

  • If you fall into one of the three categories listed below, apply for admission to Winter Session online Undergraduate Continuing Education Non-Degree Application. You must be formally admitted to the University before you may register for Winter Session courses, and you will be admitted to Winter Session as a non-degree/non-matriculated/Continuing Education student at Binghamton University.
    • Former non-matriculated/non-degree students who haven’t been enrolled for two or more major semesters
    • Undergraduate students at other colleges and universities who aren’t scheduled to receive a bachelor’s degree in Fall 2016
    • High school graduates who graduated in Spring 2016 and aren’t enrolled in any college or university may apply as a non-degree student for the 2017 Winter Session (NOTE: You are not permitted to continue in attendance for the Spring 2017 semester unless you’re admitted to a degree program at Binghamton University)
  • Admissions requirements include fulfilling health requirements and, if you’re an in-state student, completing the New York State Residency Status Application. Learn more here.
  • Once admitted, please contact Jill Seymour jseymour@binghamton.edu if you have questions on course selection, transferring credits or becoming a non-matriculated student for the spring term.
Important things to know:
  • Acceptance to the Winter Session as a non-degree student in no way implies admission to the University in a degree program for the Spring 2017 or Fall 2017 semesters.
  • Applicants with previous college experience must be in good standing at the last institution they attended.
  • Visit the Undergraduate Admissions website for more information.

Graduate

If you’re a current Binghamton University graduate student:

Simply go to the BU Brain Self Service and register for the Winter Session 2017 course you want, the same way you registered for your fall and spring semester courses. No further application or admission is necessary. Find out more about registering for courses using BU Brain Self Service.

If you have a bachelor's degree and want to take graduate or undergraduate courses without pursuing a graduate degree:

You must apply for admission to Winter Session through the Graduate School and you must be formally admitted, before you can register for Winter Session courses.

  • Submit the Graduate School Non-Degree Application.
    • The application fee is $50.
    • The application is very short and is completed online.
    • Applicants must also submit a copy of their official, final undergraduate transcript. The transcript must verify conferral of the bachelor's degree.
  • Undergraduate coursework taken while a student is enrolled as a graduate student will show on a graduate transcript. However, it will carry no grade points and will not count in a graduate GPA, nor will it count toward the completion of a graduate degree. Credit hours and the quality of work are indicated, but the letter grade is preceded by a "0".
  • Once you have been admitted, make sure to follow the instructions for new non-degree graduate students.
