Is there a deadline?
Contact your overseas program for their application deadlines. The BU deadlines for submission of all paperwork required for studying abroad on an external program are:
Spring: December 1
Fall and Academic Year: June 15
Summer: May 1
If the deadline falls on a weekend, materials are due the following Monday. Your external program file will not be reviewed for approval until it is complete. Students who do not submit a complete file by the deadline will have to wait to have their credit evaluated on their return from study abroad. In such cases, there is no guarantee that credit transfer will be granted.
