Boston University Admission Guarantee

MarshChapelStudent

Boston University Academy students in good academic and disciplinary standing enjoy guaranteed admission to Boston University.

You heard that right: Guaranteed. Admission.


Boston University Academy students must complete an application and submit all required testing in full if they wish to be considered for admission to BU. Academy students who apply to BU will be granted admission to most of BU’s undergraduate 4-year programs if they meet the following criteria:

  • Earn a 3.0 cumulative GPA in academic year University coursework by the time of application
  • Have no grade of D or F in any BUA or University course(s)
  • Have no reportable disciplinary infraction(s)

Students not meeting these benchmarks may still apply to BU and will still be considered for admission, but they will not have the benefit of knowing whether they will be admitted before the standard admission timeline.

NOTE: The College of Fine Arts and the 8-year medical program require additional review. BUA students are not eligible to apply for the College of General Studies or Metropolitan College.
