If you want to apply for non-degree study for the Fall 2013 semester, please consult the Fall 2013 instructions.
Students who have earned their bachelor's degree and wish to take courses without entering a degree program must apply to the Graduate School for non-degree study.
International students (F-1 or J-1 Visa holders or applicants) are not eligible for non-matriculated student status.
|Spring Semester 2013||January 28|

A completed and approved Graduate School application is required for all non-degree students. Begin the application process early, at least one month before you seek to enroll in specific coursework. Applications submitted after the deadline will not be accepted. Late applicants will not be allowed to attend classes and instead should reapply for future semesters.
Non-degree students must complete the application and be admitted to The Graduate School in order to register for and attend classes. Admitted non-degree students may register for most graduate classes; however, some programs limit admission to certain specified classes. It is your responsibility to verify that courses are available for the semester in which you apply. Contact the graduate director in your academic program of interest with your specific class/registration questions.
About one business day after you submit your online degree application, you will receive an e-mail containing your B-Number and Binghamton University Computer Account User ID. You will need your User ID to pay your online application fee.
Upon receipt of your B-Number and User ID, activate your password. You must do this before you can log in to pay your application fee and check your application status.
The Graduate School only reviews applications for which the non-refundable application fee was successfully paid. Pay online with a Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express credit card; your credit card billing serves as a receipt.
We can grant fee waivers to former McNair, EOP, HEOP, SEEK, Project 1000 or LSAMP undergraduate students. If eligible, complete the Application Fee Waiver form and submit a certified form or official letter from your undergraduate institution verifying this status.
For application review, upload scanned copies of your transcript from the institution where you completed or will complete your Bachelor's degree. Save the file as a PDF, and then attach it in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The subject of your email should read, "Non-Degree Applicant Transcript - [Your Name]."
We will notify you via e-mail and mail shortly after making an admission decision.
If accepted, you will be able to register for class(es) via BU Brain immediately prior to the start of the semester. You will be billed after having registered for class.
Visit the New Non-Degree (Non-Matriculated) Graduate Students page for information on fulfilling new student requirements.
Please Note: If you are granted admission to the University, you will be required to submit official copies of your final transcripts to the Graduate School.
