Text Block Applying To FY
A first-year applicant is a student who will graduate from high school in the 2019-20 academic year. A first-year applicant may also be a student who graduated from high school but has not earned more than 6 college/university credits. We review each application with a level of thoroughness and thoughtfulness that reflects the time and effort you have invested in Boston College. In making admission decisions, we consider course selection, performance assessment, standardized test scores, application essays, extracurricular activities, and recommendations.
Text Block Applying To TR
The Boston College community welcomes transfer students. A transfer applicant must complete a minimum of nine college or university credits post-secondary education and prior to the admission deadline for the semester they wish to apply. Primary emphasis is placed on the college record. However, the high school record, SAT and/or ACT test scores, essays, recommendations, activities, and work experience are also critical components of the application. In recent years, students most successful in the transfer admission process had very strong records from both high school and college.
