The Transfer Agreement with the Harpur College of Arts and Sciences at Binghamton University outlines general transfer requirements.  

General criteria of the agreement:

Students who have graduated or who will graduate prior to enrollment at Binghamton with an AA or an AS degree must have a minimum of a 3.0 cumulative grade point average for acceptance to Harpur College.

Students below the 3.0 minimum GPA may be considered for conditional acceptance when:

  • All relevant transfer admissions criteria are met.
  • Space is available in the entering class.
  • A completed application is received by March 15 for fall admission and November 15 for spring admission.

Harpur College will grant full transfer credit for college courses in the arts and sciences and up to 32 credits for non-liberal arts college courses that are theoretical in nature, provided that a grade of C- or higher is earned. Some courses counting toward a specific major may require a grade higher than C- to fulfill major requirements. Any specific grade requirements for courses counting toward a major would be noted in the appendix for that major if applicable. 

Binghamton University is currently updating program to program advising guides (Appendixes). Contact transfer admissions and the Harpur College for updated information on transfer requirements, deadlines, and questions regarding course equivalencies.

It is important to work with the Binghamton transfer admissions office and your OCC advisor to make sure you are meeting your current degree requirements and transfer requirements.
