Woods College of Advancing Studies Admissions Office
St. Mary's Hall South
140 Commonwealth Avenue
Chestnut Hill, MA 02467
All transcripts must be received one week prior to the start of the semester.
International applicants who are officially accepted to WCAS and who plan to matriculate in a campus-based program in the U.S. are required to provide confirmation of available personal finances. Once an applicant has submitted the Enrollment Response Form, the form detailed below is required to be issued a valid I-20 from the Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS).
This form verifies the student's ability to cover educational and living expenses and requires the applicant to specify the amounts and sources of funds, accompanied by official documentation, such as bank letters. If you have not yet received this form from WCAS, please email email@example.com directly.
Students holding the Student (F-1) or Exchange Visitor (J-1) Visas will not be authorized to work except under extraordinary circumstances; therefore, the applicant should not look to employment as a means of support while at Boston College. Spouses who accompany students to the U.S. on the F-2 Visa are not permitted to accept any kind of employment in the U.S.
Provided this documentation is in order, Boston College will issue a Certificate of Eligibility Form (Form I-20 for an F-1 Student Visa or Form DS2019 for a J-1 Exchange Visitor Visa) for your use in obtaining a Visa. OISS offers resources for incoming international students, including information on the Visa Application Process.
