Applications will not be reviewed until all materials are on file. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that all required materials have been received by the BU Study Abroad office.
Students with a complete application will receive an admission decision in two to three weeks.* Applicants will be notified by email.
*Please note that spring 2021 admissions decisions will be on hold until the week of September 21, 2020.
For competitive programs or tracks, BU Study Abroad may in some cases place applications on hold until a review of the full applicant pool is completed.
If you are a BU student awaiting an admissions decision, you should register for on-campus courses as you normally would do. If you are admitted to a program, BU Study Abroad will adjust your registration and student account accordingly. Fall semester applicants should also proceed with housing selection; you can later transfer your housing deposit to BU Study Abroad to account for the mandatory program deposit required of students who accept an offer of admission to a study abroad program. Please refer to the BU Housing website for details about canceling a housing reservation.
