University Policy

Faculty of Computing & Data Science Policy

Registration is conducted under the direction of the Office of the University Registrar. A student accepted for the freshman class or as a transfer student may register as part of the summer or winter orientation programs.

Those who cannot register in advance through an orientation program must do so during the on-campus registration period at the start of the semester.

Detailed instructions on first-year registration can be found on the CDS Incoming First Year Student Registration page.

Continuing students may register through WebReg on the Student Link beginning in April for the fall semester and beginning in November for the spring semester.

CDS 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 CDS is always based on that school’s prerequisites and on the availability of space.

See the Dual Degree Programs section of the Bulletin for information on dual degree programs.
