How does BU's Guaranteed Transfer work?

I recently heard about BU's Guaranteed Transfer option, and I'm intrigued. Could someone explain to me a bit about how it works? Like what exactly is guaranteed, and what do I need to do in the meantime?

Hello there! I'd be happy to shed some light on BU's Guaranteed Transfer option for you. Essentially, this program offers students admission to Boston University, contingent upon their completion of certain criteria at another institution during their freshman year. The guarantee is for admission in a future semester – most often the fall term following your freshman year.

In the meantime, you'll need to maintain a strong academic record at your current institution. This typically means achieving a certain GPA (usually around a 3.0 or higher) and completing a specific set of courses that BU outlines in your Guaranteed Transfer agreement. You also need to uphold a good disciplinary record because any infractions could potentially affect the agreement. It's crucial to stay in contact with BU's admissions office and to meet all deadlines for submitting your final transcript and any other required documentation.

Just remember to review the agreement carefully, adhere to the deadlines, and consider connecting with an advisor to ensure your current coursework aligns with BU's expectations. Best of luck!
