COVID-19 Update (May 1, 2020)

Due to health concerns related to the COVID19 and in accordance with the recommendations of Federal and State Health Agencies regarding the gathering of large groups, we regret to announce that the Boston College Experience Residential Program has been cancelled for summer 2020. This includes two, three and six week on campus programs. In lieu of the residential program, we are now offering four, two-week, fully online courses. See below for details.

All students who have been admitted to an on campus program and have paid their program fee will receive a 100% refund (application fee is nonrefundable). The funds will be credited back to the card that was used to make the payment. Please allow up to two weeks for the funds to be processed. Please note: we are unable to transfer existing admissions to the online programs. 

BC Experience 2020

We are excited to announce that in lieu of the residential program, we are offering four, two-week, fully online courses. These courses have been modified from the existing on-ground versions. They maintain the major learning activities and outcomes and will be taught by the original Boston College faculty scheduled to teach the on-campus versions. They will be taught as a combination of asynchronous and live sessions.

Students can expect approximately 2-3 hours a day engaged in classroom activites including discussions, virtual group work, faculty lectures, readings and videos, and individual assignments. Assignments and specific schedules will vary depending upon course topics chosen. Details will be provided in the course syllabi coming soon. 

These online courses will launch on June 22, 2020 and will run consecutively through the summer (based on demand). Cost for each two-week course is $1,000.00 and includes any required materials.

These course will be available only to registered students and faculty. 

Now enrolling for the two-week course. 

BCE has helped me discover what I want to pursue in my future studies, but at the same time I was able to make life-lasting friendships. It was an amazing experience.
