Views From a College Counselor: Stuart Nachbar of Educated Quest remarks on his recent visit to Binghamton: “Binghamton University does everything that people who follow education would expect of a flagship state university: maintain achievable admissions for excellent students; be affordable to residents through reasonable tuition and fees or generous scholarship programs; successfully retain and graduate its freshmen classes; be able to offer reasonably priced housing options on or near campus for students who are unlikely to commute, and have strong connections into the job market for students and alumni. Binghamton is one of the best buys in American higher education. New York residents are assessed less than $10,000 in tuition and fees; those who qualify for the state’s Excelsior program pay no tuition at all. Non-Residents are charged just over $22,000 in tuition and fees. “ To see Stuart’s full profile of Binghamton click here.
