Applying for Admission
Thank you for your interest in applying to Boston University. We accept the Common Application exclusively and also require the Boston University Supplement available on the Common Application website. Here are the steps to follow when applying for admission to BU:
1. Read the application instructions carefully before completing your application.
2. Complete the Common Application and the Boston University Supplement.
Then submit both forms online at the Common Application website. Please note that your application for admission is not complete and we cannot begin your application review until we have both forms. Your $80 non-refundable application fee can be paid by credit card when you submit the Common Application and supplement online.
To complete these forms, you’ll need to create your own Common Application website account.
3. Submit all your supporting credentials.
4. Create an account on the Boston University Applicant Link.
After you submit your application, we will email you instructions for setting up an account on the Applicant Link. You will use this to check the status of your application credentials and view your admission decision.
5. Contact us.
If you have any questions about the application process, please contact us at 617-353-2300 or email@example.com. We look forward to receiving your application.
