Undergraduate Academic Advising

I want to know more about:

  • Academic policies and procedures
  • Course sequences
  • Transfer guidelines
  • Making an appointment
  • Documents and forms

Our staff will walk you through your degree program, requirements and policies, and provide you with the resources and tools you need to be successful academically at Binghamton.

If you’re coming from a different college or school at the University, another accredited business school or a community college, the Undergraduate Academic Advising Office will help ease your transition and maximize your incoming credits to the School of Management.

Due to our AACSB Accreditation, transfer students from other AACSB accredited business schools, generally, are able to transfer all of their degree credits to SOM. We accept certain courses from community colleges that offer associate’s degrees in business administration.

We strongly encourage you to visit Academic Advising and meet with an advisor.

Location, contact and schedule

All appointments with academic advising are walk-in. So stop in and see us if you have any questions or concerns – or just to chat!
