The Student Link enables students to view their personal, academic, financial and other information relevant to their studies at Boston University. As a student, you can register for classes, pay your bills, buy Convenience Points, and maintain your personal information. You can also sponsor ShareLink login accounts to provide parents, employers, and other interested third parties secure access to view your academic and financial information — you specify the information available to each party and control the duration of access. Some information in the Student Link, such as the University Class Schedule, is publicly viewable; all student record information requires authentication (BU login).

Benefits

The Student Link reduces dependence on manual and administrative procedures and personnel, and increases students’ control over access to their student record. As a central self-service on the Web it gives access from anywhere there is an Internet connection at anytime.
