A program evaluation was conducted of the Binghamton Advantage Program (BAP) to determine how students in the program were performing and to obtain the participants’ overall thoughts on the program. Student demographic data was analyzed to determine the relationship between subgroups versus GPA and withdrawal rates. Additionally, a survey was administered to students to determine their connection to and identification with each institution, perceived preparedness levels, main concerns, and resources utilized. This evaluation serves as the first of its kind for BAP since its formation in 2011 and will help BAP administrators improve the program. Main findings include significant differences in GPA for male versus female BAP students and BAP White students versus BAP students of color, as well as significant differences in withdrawal rates for on-campus and off-campus BAP students.
