BU Metropolitan College Application Dates and Fees

Application Dates

Applications to BU Metropolitan College are reviewed on a rolling basis. The application will remain open until the final enrollment date for the Fall semester. Priority deadlines to submit your application can be found at

Once each semester has begun, BU Metropolitan College will stop accepting applications for that term and will consider applications for the next available term.


BU Metropolitan College charges a processing fee of $85 per degree program and $25 per certificate program. 

Fee Waivers

Fee waivers are only granted to students who have been identified as employees of partner corporations and are currently working with an enrollment advisor. Application fee waivers are not granted for need-based situations. To apply for a fee waiver:

Determine when to apply for your waiver.

Fee waivers are valid for 45 days (including holidays and weekends) from the time you are approved, but cannot be used after an application's deadline. Be ready to submit your application (or close to ready) if you are approved. 

Complete and submit your fee assistance application.

Contact your enrollment advisor to verify your eligibility for a corporate partner waiver.

Await notification.

Once you submit your fee waiver request, it can take several business days to process. The status of your request will be sent to both your email address and your application inbox. 

Important Note: Do not submit your application until you receive your approval notification. Submitting your application prior to notification will result in your fee waiver being nullified. 

Submit your application and pay any remaining balance. 

Once you are approved for a fee waiver, all fees are automatically deducted from the total fees shown on the Submit Application tab and you have 45 days (including weekends and holidays) to submit your application. If you do not submit your application within this timeframe:

  • Your fee waiver will be nullified.
  • The funds will be allocated to another qualifying applicant. 
  • You may not reapply for another fee waiver.

Note that BU Metropolitan College does not need to receive any outstanding letters of recommendation or test scores within the 45-day window. To claim your fee waiver, you only need to submit your application, and you must submit to all programs to which you intend to apply (when submitting your application, you'll process a payment of $0). Standard application fees apply for additional future submissions.
