How to Apply

You can apply to Kilachand by first applying to one of Boston University’s degree-granting schools or colleges via the BU Common Application or QuestBridge Application. Once there, you will have the option to complete a supplemental essay to be considered for admission to Kilachand. Your materials will be reviewed for Kilachand if you are first admitted to your BU school or college of choice, thus your admission to BU is not dependent on your admission to Kilachand.

All application materials are reviewed by BU Admissions and materials sent directly to Kilachand are not considered as part of your application. Application, scholarship, decision, and commitment dates and deadlines do not differ for Kilachand applicants from those of Boston University as a whole.
