Confirmation of enrollment

All students, undergraduate and graduate, are required to complete confirmation of enrollment for the semesters in which they are enrolled (fall, winter, spring and summer).

If confirmation of enrollment is not completed by the deadline posted, all courses will be dropped whether or not the semester bill is paid in full.  If courses are dropped because you failed to confirm, you must re-enroll in courses online via BU BRAIN and confirm your enrollment.

Students who re-register (or who register for the first time after the fifth day of classes), need to confirm their enrollment by the deadline or courses will be dropped on the fifteenth day of classes (for fall and spring semester) whether or not the semester bill is paid in full.  Note: drop dates for not completing confirmation of enrollment vary for summer and winter sessions.     

Financial aid recipients must confirm enrollment for funds to be applied to your student account balance or generate a refund, if eligible.

Confirming your enrollment acknowledges that you have been presented with and reviewed financial aid, billing and refund policies as required by federal and state agencies, SUNY and Binghamton University. 


STEP 1: Log in to BU BRAIN via the Portal. Click on the BU BRAIN icon on the left side of the Portal main page.

STEP 2: If you have not yet confirmed enrollment, you will see the following message in a green box at the top of the Home tab: "Click Here to Confirm Enrollment for [semester] or your courses will be dropped on [date] whether or not you've paid your semester bill."

STEP 3: You will be presented with two pages of information that you are required to review. Please read ALL the information carefully. After reading each page, click "Next Page" to advance.

STEP 4: On the third page, you will be asked whether you intend to graduate during this semester or not. If you select "No," you will advance to STEP 5. If you select "Yes" and possess enough credits, you will be directed to the Application for Degree, which must be completed before confirming your enrollment.

STEP 5: Finally, select "Accept & Confirm" to confirm your enrollment. On page 3, assure the circle to the left of "Accept & Confirm" contains a black dot. Visit the text link to review the details about the financial obligation statement and deadlines. Then click the "Confirm Your Enrollment" button.

You will know that your enrollment is confirmed if you return to the Home tab; you will see the following message in a green box at the top of the tab: "Your [semester] Enrollment has been Confirmed. Thank You."


  • If you do not accept and confirm, your semester courses will be dropped.  
  • If you select the text link “you must exit now” instead of clicking the “Confirm Your Enrollment” button, your semester courses will be dropped. You will also have NOT completed your Confirmation of Enrollment requirement, therefore indicating you are NOT attending Binghamton University.
