COM CO 101 and certain other courses for Spring 2015 will be available during regular registration times. COM CO 201 is the required course for COM minors.


    Enrollment Status

    All COM undergraduates (except for second semester seniors) are expected to be enrolled as full-time students. The normal academic load in COM is four courses (16 credits). Students may take up to 18 credits without incurring extra charges. For more than 18 credits, please refer to the Overloading information page.

    Undergraduate students wishing to be part-time must submit a petition to Undergraduate Affairs room 123 in COM.

    Graduate students must report their part-time status to Graduate Affairs in COM room 132 or via email comgrad@bu.edu. Failure to do so will result in an incorrect bill.
