If you are interested in nursing, you need to apply by Nov. 15!
We make decisions on a rolling basis (with the exception of nursing). This means once your application is completed, it will take about four to six weeks to receive a decision via letter. We make decisions continuously until majors are full.
Visiting will help you learn more about BU and the major you are considering. Feel free to set up an appointment directly with the major in which you are interested.
