Frequently asked College questions...

Becoming a student at Boston College is a fun and exciting experience but we get that you may be feeling a bit out of your comfort zone so we asked some of our current students the big questions they had before starting college.

I applied online, how do I track my application/accept my course offer?

If you applied online, you can log back in to your application to track its status or accept your course offer by clicking here or by selecting the 'Your Application' option at the top of this page.  

Don't panic! The College is open on results day so if you haven't got the grades you expected then come and see us and we will look at your options with you.

Come and talk to us as soon as you can. We will do everything we can to make sure you are on a course that is right for you.

This is one of the biggest concerns that new students have - but after a few weeks, they have made groups of friends that they can't imagine being without! 

Before you even enrol on your course you might be invited to an induction day in June where you will meet the other students in your group. That's a good place to start as the people on your course will share your interest in the subject area, so you immediately have something in common. 

The College also has a busy Student Union who put on events throughout the year so you can meet students from other courses.

When your enrol you will be given a list of items you need to bring on your first day. This will vary from course to course but could be as little as a pen and notebook. 

You will receive all of this information when you enrol.

Yes! Your attendance will be closely monitored and we are there to help should you have any problems.
