BU School of Hospitality Administration Application Dates and Fees

Application Dates

You can view a program's deadline by logging in to your application and navigating to:

  1. The Add Program tab. 
    • Review the information under the Deadline column. 
  2. The Program Materials section. 
    • Your selected programs appear here; click each program's name to view the associated details, including the deadline.


BU School of Hospitality Administration charges a processing fee (i.e., application fee) of $95 for each program you apply to.

Fee Waivers

Fee waivers are limited and awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Determine when to apply for your waiver.

Fee waivers are valid for 365 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 BU School of Hospitality Administration program for a fee waiver application and eligibility rules. Submit this application directly to your BU School of Hospitality Administration program.

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 365 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 School of Hospitality Administration does not need to receive any outstanding letters of recommendation or test scores within the allotted 365 days. 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.
