Course Overload Tuition Waiver

All students taking 12–18 credits are charged the basic full-time tuition. Students can overload up to a maximum of 20 credits, with each credit over 18 charged at the standard per-credit rate. Engineering students who enroll for 19-20 credits for the upcoming semester will have the associated fees waived  if they meet either of the following requirements:

  • Senior class standing.
  • Cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher.

Engineering students in the first semester of their freshman year or in their first semester after transferring to Boston University are not eligible to take more than 18 credits.

Overload tuition waivers for the next semester are processed at the conclusion of the current semester after grades have been posted. For the spring semester, this means that the waiver will not be posted to your account until after your tuition bill is due. Students with questions about this payment process should contact Student Accounting Services.
