Summer Term Registration

We have just what you are looking for, whether you are a BU student, a visiting college student, a high school student, or an adult learner.

Registration for summer 2022 opens on February 17, 2022. Sign up for an email reminder.

If you are planning to take an undergraduate- or graduate-level summer course, you can begin by browsing our selection from summer 2021. Course information for summer 2022 will be available on December 15.

The first step to register for one of our summer courses or programs is to identify with one of the groups below.


Requirements for registration

BU has several requirements in place that students must fulfill. You can check your Compliance Status by going to the “Personal” tab on the Student Link. If you are not compliant, a hold may be placed on your registration until the requirement is fulfilled.

Requirements related to summer enrollment include:

BU Alert phone number

This number is used to notify you of a University-wide emergency. You can update your Alert Number on the Student Link, “Personal” tab, under the “Address and Phone” option.

Financial obligation

Students are required to settle their Student Account by the payment deadlines set for each academic term. A hold will be placed on accounts that are not settled, which will prevent future registration activity until the payment is made.

Sexual misconduct prevention training & alcohol education

All BU undergraduates are required to complete two online training modules, one related to sexual misconduct prevention and the other related to alcohol education. Graduate students and visiting summer students are required to complete the sexual misconduct prevention training. High school students are not required to complete either of the training modules.

If you attended BU summer courses in 2021 and did not complete your relevant trainings by October 15, 2021, you will be marked non-compliant in the system and therefore prevented from registering for Summer Term 2022. To have your compliance reinstated, go to the Compliance page on the “Personal” tab on the Student Link to find a link to your training(s).


Massachusetts law requires all full-time students and all international students to be immunized against a number of diseases in order to attend the University. Students must obtain these immunizations to remain in compliance.

Local address

In order to comply with the safety regulations of the City of Boston, students must provide a current local address. You can view and update your local address on the Student Link “Personal tab”, “Address and Phone” option.
