Step 4: Introduction to Your Schedule Builder

Now that you’ve gotten your course recommendations from the First Year Survey in Step 3 (check your BU email!), you should look at available courses and arrange your schedule in myBU Student Portal.

Boston University students register online through the MyBU Student Portal. The portal features Schedule Builder and Shopping Cart, online tools that allow you to arrange a schedule of courses and their times before actually reserving a seat by registering. This means that nothing in the Schedule Builder or Shopping Cart is permanent until you actually hit “enroll” to register.  Even after you register, you can still change things around so don’t be nervous! You can’t make any mistakes we can’t fix.

To learn more about these tools and how to use them, please review the instructions for the Fall 2024 Class Registration Process.  And if you’re getting an error message you don’t understand, check out Registration Support.
