Dear Boston College Student:

As communicated previously Boston College is transitioning to a new University student information system called EagleApps.

Your first encounter with EagleApps will be during the advising and registration process for summer session (if you are registering for summer courses) or for the fall semester (if you are not registering for summer courses). Below is a reminder of upcoming important dates and activities.

March 22, 2021 Begin reviewing summer 2021 course offerings via EagleApps Course Information and Scheduling
April 5, 2021 Begin planning your schedules and courses for summer 2021 via EagleApps Planning & Registration
April 7, 2021 Summer 2021 registration opens for undergraduate students via EagleApps Planning & Registration
April 8, 2021 Summer 2021 registration opens throughout the day for graduate students (except SSW) via EagleApps Planning & Registration
April 12, 2021 Summer 2021 registration opens for SSW graduate students via EagleApps Planning & Registration

For more details regarding the 2021 summer and fall timelines, please refer to the University Registration Calendar.

The following is an overview of the three EagleApps modules with links to training materials and “how-to guides” to assist you as you plan and register for upcoming semesters.

Note: In order to access EagleApps you will need to be logged into the Portal and authenticated. If you are trying to access EagleApps outside of the BC network, then you will be required to use Eagle VPN and BC 2-Step Verification. For assistance, contact the Boston College Information Technology Services Support Team or refer to the instructions on the Eagle VPN web page (authentication required).

EagleApps Course Information and Scheduling

Step One: Course Search

The course search module is similar to the existing Course Information and Schedule (CI&S) application, but with more robust functionality. Users can search on applicable terms and view corresponding courses in order to research offerings in preparation for building plans and registering.

The public view of CI&S will remain available to those without access to the Agora Portal. Links to the new EagleApps version of CI&S and the public version of CI&S will be available on the Student Services’ Course Information & Schedule web page.

Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with this functionality by watching the online tutorials and/or reviewing the “how-to guide” below. Note: You must authenticate using your Portal password and username in order to access these materials.

Step Two: Course Planning

Once planning opens, you will be able to access the new Course Planning module within EagleApps via a link titled “EagleApps Planning & Registration” that will only be accessible in the Student Portal. Once this functionality opens you will have the ability to begin building your plan(s).

This module enables you to create up to two different academic plans for the semester, in order of priority, with up to ten courses in each plan (maximum of five for the summer). One plan may be sufficient, but there is an option to build two, if desired. When the plan(s) are complete, you will be able to run an automated check to ensure that you have the correct corequisites, permissions, and other requirements to register successfully for the selected courses if they are open at your registration time. Adding courses to a plan does not reserve a seat for you in that course. Students will be able to monitor seats open in their desired courses as their registration time approaches and make necessary adjustments. We are hopeful that this ability to plan will lead to a more efficient registration process on the day of your designated time slot.

Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with this functionality by watching the online tutorial and/or reviewing the “how-to guide” below. Note: You must authenticate using your Portal password and username in order to access these materials.

Step Three: Registration

Once the Registration period opens, you will be able to access your existing plan(s) via the same application “EagleApps Planning & Registration,” which will only be accessible in the Agora Portal. Now you will have the ability to submit your plan at the time registration is open to you. You will be successfully registered for courses that are open at your registration time and that you have all the necessary permissions needed to be enrolled. You will use this registration module to add and drop as well until the designated end of that period for the active semester.

Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with this functionality by watching the online tutorial and/or reviewing the “how-to guide” below. Note: You must authenticate using your Portal password and username in order to access these materials.

We encourage you to visit the Student Services’ Course Registration web page at www.bc.edu/registration frequently for further guidance, updates, and instructions as we transition to the EagleApps system.

Sincerely,

Information Technology Services & Office of Student Services
