Applicants should send transcripts for all prior college level coursework to Boston University. Students are welcome either to have transcripts sent directly to BU or to collect all needed transcripts and mail the transcripts together in one packet to BU.

Students who are completing the last year of their undergraduate degree at the time of applying to BU should submit current transcripts with their application.  If admitted, we will need such students to submit an additional transcript showing completion of their undergraduate degree before they can matriculate at BU.

Information on where to send transcripts can be found here.

Median GPA

The median GPA for admitted students is 3.5 on a 4.0 scale.
