Academic Advising

Our Academic Advisor is here to help you if you are planning to apply for admission to Boston University or other schools in the United States. Our advisor can help you with the following:

  • Admissions policies and procedures
  • The Common/Undergraduate Application
  • Graduate Application
  • Application Essays

At CELOP, we will help you throughout the application process to make sure you meet the requirements. Our advisor will make sure that you have a completed application. We understand your goal of improving your English in order to get accepted to a degree program. You can begin the process by making sure you collect official transcripts and letters of recommendation from your home country. If the transcripts or letters  are not written in English, they must be accompanied by official translations.

The Academic Advisor can help you if you will be applying for admission to Master’s or Doctoral programs. If you arrive here with a beginning level of English, we recommend two years of English language study at CELOP to reach the necessary level of proficiency. If you are completing university and will be applying for admission to Master’s or Doctoral programs, your recommenders may be required to submit their recommendations online, so make sure to get their email addresses.
