Like you, Boston College wants what's best for your young person. We want to make sure every individual chooses the course that's right for them, gains the qualification they need for a successful future and enjoys their time at College.
This section contains all the information you need to know about your young person starting Boston College, as well as some useful handbooks and contacts should you have any questions or concerns. College is a very different environment to school; however we work closely with students and parents to ensure the transition is a smooth one.
