Complete the steps outlined in the First-Year Undergraduate Student Checklist by August 1 (incoming freshmen).

View the First-Year Undergraduate Student Checklist. Also, be sure to access the links to the Academic Planning Workbook and University Catalog in early June, as these will help with course registration.

Complete the Incoming Student Validation Form (incoming students only).

The 2023–2024 Incoming Student Validation form is now available and can be submitted through the College Board’s Institutional Documentation Service (IDOC).  All incoming freshmen and incoming transfer students are required to complete this form as it is used to verify your financial aid award.  An email was sent to all incoming freshmen and incoming transfer students with instructions pertaining to the submission of this form.  The Incoming Student Validation form and the usage of IDOC is not required of returning students.

Sign up for an Orientation session (incoming freshmen).

All incoming deposited freshmen must sign up for an Orientation session. If you have not already signed up for your session, we encourage you to do so quickly. Sessions are filling up and are available on a first come first served basis, so sign up today. For more information, visit the First Year Experience website.

Incoming graduate or law student?

Welcome to Boston College! There are a number of things you need to do now that you have matriculated. Visit the Incoming Graduate Student Checklist and Incoming Law Student Checklist for more information.

Not heard back about your financial aid application yet?

To check on the status of your application, visit www.bc.edu/finaidapp. All undergraduate financial aid award notifications for completed applications will be e-mailed to students' BC e-mail addresses. If students did not receive an award notification, they should make sure that all required information for 2023–2024 has been received.

Enroll in QuikPAY Payment Plan (undergraduate and Law students).

Enrollment for the QuikPAY Payment Plan (available to undergraduate and Law students only) began on May 2 for the 2023–2024 academic year. For more information, visit www.bc.edu/qppp.

Looking for a summer job?

Both Summer 2023 and 2023-2024 Academic Year job opportunities are now available on the Job Listings page. For students who have secured an on-campus job for the first time, please be sure to bring forms of identification (such as but not limited to, a valid/unexpired U.S. Passport, or a combination of a valid driver’s license or Eagle ID card and Social Security card or birth certificate) in original formats. No pictures or photocopies will be accepted. A full list of acceptable documents for Form I-9 completion can be found on the USCIS website. International F-1 students will need to bring in their valid Foreign Passport along with their Forms I-94 and I-20 and Employment Authorization Letter from the Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS).

Purchase a MBTA pass for the fall semester.

Students may begin purchasing MBTA passes at a discount on June 12. The deadline to purchase fall semester MBTA passes at a discount is August 9. Visit the MBTA Passes and Parking Permits page for more information.

Update your Social Security Number (US citizens only).

All US citizens should update their social security number on the Agora Portal.  Your social security number is necessary for federal reporting purposes related to your 1098T, Financial Aid, and Enrollment reporting requirements. You will be prompted to update your social security number in the Agora Portal when required.

Ongoing Reminders

Sign a Direct Loan Master Promissory Note (if applicable).

Visit the Federal Student Aid website for more information.

Complete Title IV Authorization (if applicable).

Federal regulations require that Title IV funds credited to your student account be applied only to cover allowable charges, unless Boston College obtains authorization to apply these funds to all other charges on your student account. You may submit your authorization electronically at www.bc.edu/myservices. For more information, visit the Billing page.

Complete Direct Loan Entrance Counseling (if applicable).

Visit the Federal Student Aid website for more information.

Enroll in direct deposit for student account refunds (if applicable).

We recommend that all students use direct deposit when requesting refunds. Refunds processed via direct deposit are faster and do not require pickup. Visit the Billing page for instructions and more information.
