Given the rapidly evolving circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the summer Boston College Orientation program will be amended to ensure the health and safety of entering students, their families, and the BC community.

BC Orientation 2020 will be offered as a hybrid of virtual content delivered over the course of June, July, and August, and on-campus programming taking place the week prior to the start of fall classes. This dual approach will provide entering students with multiple opportunities to connect with fellow members of the Class of 2024, as well as current students, faculty, and administrators, all while preparing for the  intellectual, social, and cultural dimensions of life at Boston College, according to Michael Sacco, executive director of BC's Center for Student Formation and Office of First Year Experience.

On April 15, 2020, Orientation registration will be available through the Admitted Student Portal for students who have submitted their deposit to BC. The deadline for Orientation registration is May 1, 2020.
