Applying for the Core
Beginning on April 1, admitted students will be able to submit a request through this webpage, asking to have their place reserved in the fall semester first-year Core courses. Since students already accepted to Boston University have met the academic eligibility requirements for Core, this application serves more as an entrance interview for the Core program, giving us a chance to learn about you and your interests over the course of the summer.
Core seminars are most successful when all participants are actively committed to the larger enterprise of engaging with classic works and important ideas, in close conversation with faculty and fellow students. Therefore, we like to communicate with incoming students as early as possible, rather than getting to know you only in September when you arrive to campus. That way we can make sure Core is the right fit for you.
