Academic Conduct Code
All entering College of Engineering students must read and affirm that they have read the Academic Conduct Code. (This is only required once.) Boston University’s Academic Conduct Code is designed to assist the development of a supportive and productive learning environment. It is both a description of the University’s ethical expectations of students as well as a guarantee of student’s rights and responsibilities as members of a learning community. the Code provides clarity related to policy and procedure regarding academic conduct.

- For information on Academic Standing, please refer to the Bulletin.
Please be mindful that tuition waivers should only be submitted once & that they will not be processed until the conclusion of each current semester; to be applied towards the immediate subsequent semester. The cumulative grade point average requirement (3.00 minimum) must be met at the conclusion of the current semester in order to determine the requirement for the overload. If a waiver is submitted for the Fall term at the conclusion of the Spring term and the student plans on enrolling in Summer term courses, the waiver is conditional. The grade point average requirement must be maintained for Summer coursework; otherwise the waiver will be revoked.
Once your tuition waiver has been processed and approved, you will need to contact Student Accounting Services to verify your tuition waiver approval and ensure all reimbursements are attained. If your tuition and/or fees do not correspond to the courses you have selected, contact the Office of the University Registrar.
Leave of Absence/Withdrawal
A student who decides to take a leave of absence or withdraw from the University must contact the University Service Center, 881 Commonwealth Avenue. Exit interviews will be conducted. If a refund or credit on paid tuition fees is due, the amount refunded or credited is calculated with reference to the date of the student’s first official notification of intent to withdraw. The refund schedule is available here.
For students living on campus, submitting a leave of absence form does not automatically release them from a housing contract. Students must contact the Office of Housing at 985 Commonwealth Avenue to make necessary arrangements.
Upon return from a leave of absence, it is the student’s responsibility to contact the Office of Housing directly to be considered for on-campus housing. The College of Engineering does not notify the Office of Housing to send the student information or an application for housing. In addition, a student requesting financial aid should notify the Office of Financial Assistance as soon as possible regarding eligibility and availability of funds.
When a student returns to the College, it is important for the student, the faculty advisor and an academic counselor to review the student’s program of study and any changes in the degree program. A returning student follows the program planning sheet for the new expected year of graduation.
Students who matriculate at another institution and wish to return must apply for regular transfer admission through the Office of Admissions.
Undergraduate students who voluntarily absent themselves from the College for one or more semesters without requesting a leave of absence may be withdrawn by the College.
