Dear Students and Parents:

We realize that the COVID-19 pandemic, and Boston College’s decision to transition to online teaching beginning March 19, has caused stress and anxiety for many members of the BC community. It has also prompted a series of questions, which we hope to answer through the following FAQ. We will continue to communicate with you in the coming days, as additional information becomes available.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this unprecedented event in University history.
