Repeat and international applicants

If you are re-applying for Boston University’s MFA in Creative Writing, and wish to re-use application materials (transcripts, test-scores, letters of recommendation, etc.) from your previous attempt, you will need to contact the Office of Graduate Admissions directly ( or 617-353-2696) to request that said materials be attached to your current application.

International students must supply additional paperwork, and in some cases, scores from the TOEFL exam. Please consult with the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
