Dear Incoming Student,

Good afternoon.  Please know that the Boston College community is here to support you during this extraordinary moment in your life and in the history of our program and university. We understand that the rapidly evolving circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic may have wreaked havoc on your senior year.  The Learning to Learn staff and BC F1RST College Transition Program team are committed to your success and we offer our support to you, during this difficult moment in time.  If you have any questions about the BC F1RST College Transition Program, do not hesitate to contact us via email at, or    

Given the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting challenges, the BC F1RST College Transition Program application deadline has been extended to May 15, 2020.  Extending the deadline will provide you and your family some additional time to make a thoughtful decision about applying to the program.  At this time, we are still preparing for a July 11, 2020 kick-off to the BC F1RST College Transition Program.  Any adjustments to our plans for the BC F1RST College Transition Program will be posted here and communicated to all students who have submitted an application to the program.  We look very forward to welcoming you as a member of the Class of 2024 and to supporting you throughout your educational journey at Boston College.
