Note that self-reporting your scores is not the same as providing official scores to your programs. If your programs require official test scores, see below for more information.

Submitting Your Official Test Scores

Submitting Your Official GRE Scores

Official GRE Scores are submitted electronically to BU Sargent College directly from ETS using the GRE code #3087. Paper copies are not accepted. 

Official GRE scores from ETS can be received by BU Sargent College at any point during the application cycle, even after your application is submitted. Note, however, some programs may have a deadline by which they want your scores posted. Once your official GRE scores are attached to your application, they cannot be removed.  

To submit your official GRE scores to BU Sargent College:

  1. Provide code #3087 to ETS and request that your scores be released. Check with ETS about their turnaround and processing times. 
  2. After ETS processing, scores are sent to BU Sargent College in batches and then posted to applications every 2-3 days. Only scores that you requested using code #3087 will post to your application. You can view scores attached to your application in the Standardized Tests section of the Check Status tab.

It is your responsibility to follow up on any missing GRE scores in a timely manner. If your scores are not posted within ETS's processing period, contact customer service and provide them with the following details:

  • First and last names
  • Date of birth
  • GRE Registration ID Number
  • CAS ID
  • Test date and date scores were sent by ETS

We will use this information to determine if we have received the batch and to locate your scores, if possible. If your scores aren't found, we'll contact ETS to troubleshoot.

Note: if your name or date of birth appears differently on your GRE than it does on your BU Sargent College application, your scores will not automatically post to your account. This often happens with applicants with hyphens, apostrophes, etc., in their names. Wait until ETS processes the scores, then contact application support so we can manually connect the scores to your application.   

Submitting Your Official IELTS Scores 

Official IELTS scores must be provided to BU Sargent College directly from IELTS in paper format. You must contact IELTS to have your scores released to BU Sargent College. When you sit for your test, add BU Sargent College as one of the institutions you would like your score report released to. Use the following address:

BU Sargent College Test Scores
PO Box 9206
Watertown, MA 02471

Submitting Your Official MCAT Scores 

You must contact AAMC to have your official MCAT scores sent to BU Sargent College. Once you do, AAMC electronically sends your scores directly to BU Sargent College. Paper copies are not accepted.

After you contact AAMC, make sure you also self-report your MCAT score in the Standardized Tests section of the application and include your AAMC ID number; this is required for your official scores to be matched to your application. It takes approximately 10-12 business days from the date you make the request to post to your application. 

Make sure that the name, date of birth, and AAMC ID number on your application match that on your MCAT exam; otherwise, your scores will not automatically post to your account. If you believe there may be a discrepancy, wait until AAMC processes your scores, then contact customer service so they can manually connect the scores to your application. 

Once your MCAT scores are attached to your application, they cannot be removed should you decide you no longer want your programs to view them. Your MCAT scores will also remain attached to your application if you re-apply. We recommend researching your programs to determine whether you want your MCAT scores to be part of your application before you request them.

If your scores are older (i.e., pre-2010) and are only available in paper, ask your programs if they would like your scores sent to them directly.

Submitting Your Official TOEFL Scores 

You must contact ETS to have your official TOEFL scores released to BU Sargent College. Once you do, ETS electronically sends your scores directly to BU Sargent College. Paper copies are not accepted. 

To submit your official TOEFL scores to BU Sargent College, go to http://www.ets.org/toefl and request your scores be sent to BU Sargent College using code #3087. It takes approximately 10-12 business days from the date you make the request to post to your application. 

Make sure that the name and date of birth on your application match that on your TOEFL exam; otherwise, your scores will not automatically post to your account. If you believe there may be a discrepancy, wait until ETS processes the scores, then contact customer service so they can manually connect the scores to your application. 

Note that your application will not be delayed if you haven't yet taken the TOEFL. Your programs can view your scores once they are received. You should, however, be aware that some programs may need scores by a certain date; check with your programs to ensure you meet all deadline requirements.
