All students must comply with the following rules before enrolling in classes. Students who do not comply with these requirements will not be permitted to register for the current semester.

Are You Safe, Settled and Healthy?

As a result of new requirements and stricter enforcement of the state immunization requirements, Boston University is asking all students, "Are you Safe, Settled and Healthy?" to be sure that everyone is in compliance with state and University rules. What does Safe, Settled and Healthy mean?

Safe = Have you entered an emergency contact phone number in the Student Link?
This number will be used by the Send Word Now system to alert you in emergency situations. You can provide the number by clicking on "Update Campus Emergency Phone" in the Student Link.
Settled = Have you settled your Student Account? Did you pay your tuition and fees? You can check your account information by clicking on the "Money Matters" tab in the Student Link.
Healthy = Have you met Massachusetts state immunization requirements?
You must prove that you have received all vaccinations required by state law. Click here to review the requirements outlined on the Students Health Services website

Students who do not comply with these requirements will not be permitted to register for the current semester.

A special page has been added to the Student Link so you can check to see if you are in compliance with the Safe, Settled and Healthy requirements.  Go to Student Link, click on the "Personal" tab, and then select "Compliance Status" from the list.

Incoming Students: Helpful information for getting started at B.U.
