Before beginning your first semester here at BU there are a few important things you’ll need to take care of, including registering for classes and attending your Orientation session.

As a transfer student, you should plan to attend orientation July 10 – 12, 2019 or August 28 – 31, 2019.

If you are unable to attend in July, please contact the Orientation office.

To register for Orientation, or for more information on Orientation, contact BU Orientation at or by phone at 617-353-3555.

At Orientation you will learn about the resources available to you at Boston University, the School’s policies and procedures, and the multitude of extra-curricular clubs, sports, and activities on campus.  It will also give you a chance to meet other new-to-BU students.

Please select ‘Register for your first BU semester‘ from the navigation bar so that you can start planning your future here at Boston University.  If you have any questions about anything, you can always contact the Undergraduate Academic and Career Development Center (UDC) by phone at 617-353-2650 or you can contact the Assistant Director, Cameron Smith, by email at
