Set Up a BU Account

In order to register for BU courses online, you will first need to set up a BU Login Name and Kerberos password.

BU email will be forwarded to any email account you specify, but you can also access BU email through a BU Google Apps account. The Google Apps account provides access to Google Sites, Google Calendar, Google Documents and a variety of Google Gadgets.  To activate a BU Google Apps account, present your current BU ID at an IT Help Center.  Find IT Help Center hours and locations here.

Note: The process for setting up your email account is different if you are registered for Metropolitan College programs at military locations. Please contact Gerard Keegan at for more information.
