Adding a College

  1. Click Add a College.
  2. Type and select your college. It may take several tries to find your school, especially if it shares its name with others or could be spelled differently. For example, if you attended "Saint John's University," you may need to try "Saint John," "St. John," or "St John" (no period) to bring the school up on the list. If you exhausted all options and it does not appear, select Can't find your school?
  3. Select if you obtained (or plan to obtain) a degree from the selected institution.
    • If you earned or plan to earn a degree, provide details about the earned or expected degree.
    • Click Add another Degree to add additional degrees, as needed.
  4. Select your college's term system. You can usually find this on the back of your official transcripts, or you can contact your college's registrar.
    • Term system refers to the type of hours your credits are worth, not the length of the term or how many terms a year your college offered.
    • If your transcript lists some courses as quarter and others as semester, enter the term type that is most common (i.e. if you have six quarter terms and two semester terms, enter quarter). During the verification process, our team will confirm that the term type is correct. 
  5. Enter dates of the first and last terms you attended. Be sure to only enter each college you attended once, regardless of gaps in your attendance there.
  6. Click Save This College to complete the college entry.

Uploading Transcripts

Once you enter a college, upload any associated transcripts using the Upload Transcript button. If you are offered admission and then accept that offer, you are required to provide official transcripts directly to BU Questrom School of Business. Your official transcripts will then be verified against the transcripts you uploaded to your application. Any falsified transcripts provided through the application upload is a violation of Boston University’s Certification and Authentication statement.

Mailing Transcripts

If you do not have a transcript to upload, submit your application and request that your official transcript be sent to:

BU Questrom School of Business 
Graduate Admissions Office
595 Commonwealth Avenue, Suite 102
Boston, MA 02215

Transcripts from International Institutions 

International transcripts should be official as issued from the college or university, be translated into English (if applicable), and carry the appropriate university seal(s).
