Transfer Advising

What to do when you feel lost

Soon you will feel settled into your new home away from home. But in the beginning, it can sometimes be hard to get your bearings. You have faculty, staff, and peers on campus eager to advise you.

Transfer students at BU are assigned academic advisors in the same way incoming first-year students are. But if you’re having trouble figuring out who your advisor is, or how to connect with them, each school or college has a contact person for transfer students who can point you in the right direction.

You may find the Transfer Roadmap a helpful planning tool. You can use it to start thinking about what you want to do with your time at BU, and you can have it with you when you meet with your advisor.
