Second Bachelor’s Degree Applicants

If you have already earned a bachelor’s degree, you can apply to BU as a first-year student to pursue another. Please use the Common Application to apply.

To be admitted, you must meet all the degree and residency requirements of your chosen program. Credits earned toward your first bachelor’s degree cannot be considered for credit. You may be eligible for some types of loan funding, but not for institutional financial aid or federal or state grants.
