How can we work together to promote better cultural understanding worldwide?

Qais Akbar Omar (GRS’16), a graduate student in the Creative Writing Program, has published a much-praised memoir, A Fort of Nine Towers: An Afghan Family Story. He recalls how the violence and tumult of civil war jolted his family, who, despite losing relatives, their home, and possessions, continued to nurture his wish to attend a university.

Intra-University Transfer Students

Transferring from another BU school or college to the College of Arts & Sciences

During the course of your studies, you may decide that the College of Arts & Sciences (CAS) is a more appropriate home for your college education. If this is the case, we encourage you to consult with an undergraduate advisor in the CAS Advising Center or an advisor associated with the major you wish to undertake. Click here for procedures for transferring into CAS from another BU school or college.

In general, an Intra-University transfer from any of BU’s four-year Schools & Colleges into CAS requires the following:

  • A minimum 2.00 cumulative grade point average
  • At least one full-time semester with 12 or more credits in a degree program at your current school

Students in the College of General Studies have the opportunity to transition into CAS to complete their BU degree, and can contact CGS Student Services or CAS Advising Center for further information.
