We welcome you to review a short tutorial video with step-by-step instructions for course registration.

New Student Course Registration

  1. Choose your courses. The Boston University Course Schedule lists the courses that are available for the current or upcoming semester. You can also request a printed Metropolitan College schedule for the current semester by calling 617-353-6000. Please note that some courses require stamped approval. To obtain stamped approval, contact Metropolitan College at 617-353-3000 for instructions.
  2. Register online (except for Boston University employees who should enroll using a paper form—instructions below).
  3. Confirm your schedule. Once you have registered for your courses you may access or change your schedule online using the Student Link. The Student Link is a fast and easy way to view and modify your student information. You will need your BU email address and Kerberos password.
  4. Settle your account. Tuition and fees must be paid in full by the payment deadline in order avoid late fee charges. Please review our Payment Information & Deadlines page for more information, or contact BU’s Student Accounting Services office at 617-353-2264.

IMPORTANT All on-campus students are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 before coming to campus in the fall and upload information about their status within 5 days of completing course registration. Please visit our Back2BU page for vaccine documentation upload instructions. We welcome you to view the June 21, 2021 letter from the Dean of Students Office which includes frequently asked questions.
