Match Requirements

Print

Deadline: November 1

The following items are required in addition to the听QuestBridge Application.

艾可直播 College QuestBridge Questionnaire

Upon receiving your National College Match Application, you will receive instructions to complete the 艾可直播 College QuestBridge Questionnaire. This questionnaire is required in order for us to complete your application.

Please note that as part of the QuestBridge Questionnaire, only those applying to the Human Centered Engineering major will be required to submit the 艾可直播 College Writing Supplement. You can find the essay prompt听here听(option #5).

High School Transcript

Please have your high school counselor submit your official transcript tobcapplicant@bc.edu. If your counselor uploaded your transcript as part of your National College Match application, you do not need to resubmit it.

Standardized Testing

艾可直播 College will maintain a test-optional policy for first year applicants during the 2023-2024 admission cycle.Learn more here.

Students who are unable to submit standardized test results, or who choose not to, will not be disadvantaged in our selection process. In reviewing applications that do not include standardized test results, the Admission Committee will place greater emphasis on other required application credentials including academic performance, rigor of coursework, placement in class, personal statements, recommendations, and co-curricular involvement.

For those students who would like to submit standardized testing results, we accept the ACT or SAT and don't require any Optional Writing portion. If you submit multiple scores, we will superscore the tests for our evaluation and we will use the scores as one component in our holistic review of applications. If sending official scores from a testing agency, do NOT use the rush reporting service. 艾可直播 College will accept self-reported ACT or SAT test scores for QuestBridge students participating in the National College Match process only. For those who choose to submit test scores, official ACT or SAT score reports will be required prior to enrolling at 艾可直播 College. If the cost of sending test scores from the ACT or College Board would present a financial burden, please have your guidance or college counselor email a copy of your score report to admission@bc.edu. We also accept test scores that are reported on official high school transcripts.

Students who wish to further quantify their academic successes are welcome to note non-required credentials such as Advanced Placement scores or predicted IB scores.听

SAT code: 3083

ACT code: 1788

Optional Credentials for the Arts

Artistic portfolios can be submitted through . As a QuestBridge applicant, please select the QuestBridge category followed by the application round and corresponding artistic submission for studio art, music, and/or theater. If you are applying as part of the National College Match, please select the QuestBridge Early Decision I round for your artistic submission.听

Please note that only students who intend to major in Studio Art can submit听artistic听samples/portfolios through SlideRoom. If not majoring in Studio Art, please highlight any art involvement (such as photography, painting, drawing, ceramics, digital media, and video) within the Activities or Additional Information sections of the QuestBridge Application or the Common Application.听

Students with a background in theatre and/or music who plan to be involved in music and theater productions at 艾可直播 College are invited to showcase their talents by submitting artistic听samples via SlideRoom,听regardless of their intended major.听听If you do not intend to formally pursue these听artistic听talents at 艾可直播 College, but you would like to tell us about past experiences you've had in the arts, we encourage you to do so within the Activities or Additional Information sections of the QuestBridge Application or the Common Application.

For Early Decision II and Regular Decision candidates, the deadline is January 2.听Submissions received after these dates will not be reviewed. Please note that there is a $5 fee to submit your artistic samples. Students applying as QuestBridge National College Match applicants with 艾可直播 College will automatically be reimbursed the $5 submission fee. Students applying outside of the Match process via Early Decision II and Regular Decision may request a fee waiver by emailing Linda Galvin (linda.galvin@bc.edu)听if the fee poses a financial hardship.
