 The accelerated program allows well-prepared students to complete the Mathematics BA and Master of Arts in Teaching (Mathematics Adolescent Education) in 5 years. Transfer students are not eligible for the accelerated program. Students can also complete the Bachelors and Masters program independently. The accelerated program allows well-prepared students to complete the Mathematics BA and Master of Arts in Teaching (Mathematics Adolescent Education) in 5 years.

 An accelerated program allows a student to obtain a bachelor'​s degree and a master'​s degree in five years. You complete most of the coursework for your bachelor'​s degree in your first three years. In your fourth year, you take both bachelor'​s- and master'​s-level courses, graduate with your bachelor'​s degree and formally apply to the Graduate School. In your fifth year, you are admitted to the Graduate School and focus solely on graduate coursework. An accelerated program allows a student to obtain a bachelor'​s degree and a master'​s degree in five years.

 +The Department of Mathematical Sciences will not consider transfer credits for courses taken in programs outside of the U.S. that are not part of a regular degree-granting curriculum (in particular, summer and winter courses outside of the U.S.) Numerous concerns have emerged in the past few years about the academic integrity of these courses. Exceptions of this policy are courses from a whitelist of programs and institutions,​ including programs organized by or associated with Binghamton University (such as the study abroad program, and collaborative programs with Binghamton University’s foreign partner institutions). The Department of Mathematical Sciences will continue to review transfer credit requests for courses taken in the U.S., and courses taken outside of the U.S. as part of a regular degree-granting curriculum (examples of the latter case are courses that a student previously took in XYZ university as a full-time student prior to transferring to Binghamton University.)
