International Students

All prospective international students should visit the International Students and Scholars Office for more information about the BU policies and procedures related to international students. All international students who wish to have their previous educational endeavors outside of the US, Canada and the United Kingdom count towards the admission prerequisites must have their academic record reviewed and verified by the World Educational Services (WES) transcript service. Prerequisite course requirements for international applicants are the same as all applicants.

For those who speak English as a second language and those who did not complete 4 years of undergraduate education in the United States, Canada or the United Kingdom, English language fluency examinations are also required.  Please see the TOEFL website for more details. Minimum scores for the TOEFL exam are:  26 (reading), 26 (listening), 26 (speaking), and 28 (writing).
