University Policy

College of Arts & Sciences Policy

Registration is conducted under the direction of the Office of the University Registrar (OUR). A student accepted for the freshman class or as a transfer student will receive information regarding academic advising and registration in advance of their first semester.

Continuing students may register beginning in April for the fall semester and beginning in November for the spring semester.

College of Arts & Sciences students may register for courses in any of the full-time undergraduate schools and colleges of Boston University and receive degree credit for elective courses and BU Hub units for general education requirements. Enrollment in courses offered in a school outside CAS is always based on that school’s prerequisites and on the availability of space.

See the Special Programs section of this Bulletin for dual degree programs.
