BC Students

  • Submit an online application by clicking the “Apply Now” button on your first-choice program page

  • Contact the faculty leader to discuss your interest in the program and any questions regarding academics.

  • If necessary, attend a general information session or schedule an advising meeting. Note that applicants are not required to meet with an advisor for summer programs, with the exception of those applying to internships abroad.

External Applicants (non-BC students)

All summer programs, with the exception of internships, are open to non-BC students. External applicants must be undergraduates fully matriculated in an accredited institution of higher education at the time of participation in the program.

  • Submit an online application by clicking the “Apply Now” button on your first-choice program page. Then create an account. 

  • Contact the faculty leader to discuss your interest in the program and any questions regarding academics.

  • If you would like to speak to the summer advisor, please email summerabroad@bc.edu. We are happy to speak with you by phone or in person.

     

  • While there is no GPA minimum, students must be in good academic and disciplinary standing in order to participate in summer programs
  • All students must be fully matriculated at an accredited institution of higher education at the time of participation in the course. For this reason, incoming freshmen are not eligible for participation in summer programs
  • Students under 18 must include a parental/guardian signature on all final confirmation forms.

Graduating Seniors & Graduate Students

  • BC graduating seniors are eligible to participate in summer programs pending approval from the OIP. Interested applicants must contact the Summer & Internships Program Manager for more information. If students graduate prior to participation in summer programs, they will be billed as external students.

  • BC graduate students are eligible to participate in summer programs but are subject to the tuition rate of their own graduate school.

The Office of International Programs reserves the right to update, change, or cancel any BC Summer program without notice due to unexpected events abroad, curriculum, or enrollment issues.
