Next Steps Checklist

Let's make it official! A deposit secures your spot in the Husky Family with the incoming class and launches the next phase of admissions, such as getting set up with orientation, residence life, and a step closer to landing a roommate.

  • Review your “To Do” list in MyHusky and respond in a timely manner to any outstanding items.
  • Review your financial aid awards to determine if you have an outstanding balance. Use our cost worksheet to help you do the math!
  • Complete the Financial Terms and Conditions on your MyHusky account.

All first-year and transfer students are required to submit a final transcript from their previous school. First-year students should submit a transcript showing proof of graduation. Transfer students should submit a transcript showing grades from their final semester in college. Please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions with any questions.

  • Do you believe you are a strong writer? Fluent in another language? Consider the earning Credit by Exam for ENGLISH 101, which would exempt you from the course.
  • If applicable, send us any AP exam test scores and final transcripts from other colleges attended to the Admissions Office.
  • Review your fall class schedule in your MyHusky account. Schedules will be posted mid-August. For Transfer students, your schedule will be available as soon you meet with your academic department.
  • Please Note: First-Year students will have their first-semester courses scheduled for them via the Registrar's Office.
  • Once you have your class schedule, visit our University Bookstore website to price and purchase your textbooks.

Check it frequently! We will primarily communicate with you through your email address. So this is your main source for important dates, deadlines, and activities.

All new students are required to complete the online health forms prior to starting classes. We work hard to make sure all our Huskies are healthy — your health and wellness are priorities.

  • Meet the Husky Orientation and Welcome Leaders! HOWLs are upperclassmen who help you in your transition to BU. It's never too early to get in touch with an HOWL and ask questions!
  • Still stuck? Please email with any other questions or review the Orientation FAQs and we will gladly put you in contact with the appropriate resource! 
  • Complete your "Before BU" assignment. This will become available in July for all students.
