Transfer Appeals Website
When you transfer into Binghamton University, you will receive a transcript evaluation which will show how your prior courses will be accepted in transfer. If you do not agree with the decision on the granting or placement of credit that you earned at your prior institution, you have the right to submit an appeal.

Further Appeals Process for Students Transferring from a SUNY Institution
There is an additional appeals process if you have transferred from a prior SUNY institution. If you submit the above form and receive a decision but do not agree with the decision regarding your SUNY courses, you may appeal to the SUNY System Provost. If you submit the above form and do not receive a response within 15 business days of submitting the form, you may appeal to the SUNY System Provost. You may submit the appeal by filling out the SUNY System appeal form at http://www.suny.edu/provost/academic_affairs/studentform.cfm and sending it along with the requested material via email to TransferCredit@sysadm.suny.edu. You may also submit the appeal via certified mail to:
Dr. David Lavallee
Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs
SUNY System Administration
One University Plaza
Albany, NY 12246
The SUNY Provost will respond to your appeal within five business days from the receipt
of the completed appeal application. If the decision finds merit to change the course
to meet a major requirement, SUNY System will notify Binghamton University to take
the appropriate action. If you have questions about the SUNY Appeals process, please
contact Robert Kraushaar at Robert.Kraushaar@suny.edu. The appeals process and necessary forms can also be accessed at the SUNY Provost
