End of Semester Questions

When are my final exams?

We post final exams calendar here, but make sure to check your syllabi and with teachers regarding the due dates of final papers, projects, and/or presentations.

When will I/my university know my final grades?

Shortly after final exams, BU Madrid will send all final grades to Boston University in Boston. BU sends students a copy of their unofficial transcript, usually within a few weeks of receiving the grades. Students with access to Student Link may view their grades online once they’ve been entered, and those without access may email Amalia Pérez-Juez (amaliapj@bu.edu) directly about final grades if they need to know prior to the arrival of the BU transcript.

Boston University does not send final grades to students’ home universities. Students are responsible for turning in their final grades to their universities according to the criteria and process specified by the university, if they so desire. In the event you or your university are in a hurry to receive your final grades, official transcripts may be requested (date TBA) and likely would arrive before the unofficial one.

How do I receive an official transcript from Boston University?

Students may request official transcripts from the Boston University Office of the Registrar.

Why did I receive an incomplete for my internship class?!

Don’t worry if you received an incomplete for your internship class. The most common reason this happens is because your supervisor did not hand in his/her evaluation in a timely manner and therefore BU Madrid cannot give you a final grade for the class. As soon as the evaluation is received, your grade will be changed automatically.
