Financial Aid for BUSTI is available on an as-needed basis subject to availability. Click here for more information. As BUSTI admission is need-blind, requests for financial aid will not affect a student’s acceptance into the program.


College Credit

Upon successful completion of the program, students earn a certificate of completion and four college credits, transferable to most institutions the student will later attend. For comparison, one (1) Boston University credit in 2015-2016 costs $1,428.


Withdrawal Refund Schedule

If a student withdraws from BUSTI after paying the tuition, but before move-in day, the university will refund 100% of tuition, including room and board charges, minus the non-refundable $500 deposit. If a student withdraws before 10:00am Friday of the first week of classes, the university may partially refund that tuition by no more than 50%.

There will be no tuition refunds after the beginning of the second week of classes. Once the program begins, room and board changes are non-refundable. In the unlikely event that a student is dismissed from the program, tuition and room/ board charges are non-refundable.
