With its high level of research and wide range of academics, Boston College is a great destination for undergraduate and graduate students alike. Despite an enrollment of nearly 15,000, the college maintains a student-to-faculty ratio below 15:1.
Boston College offers about 20 degree programs and more than 55 concentrations throughout its academic divisions:
- College of Arts & Sciences

In addition to these schools, the Woods College of Advancing Studies exists to serve adult students. Woods College offers programs for degree completion, professional studies and non-degree coursework.
The application deadline for early action undergraduates is November 1, and the regular decision deadline is January 1. For graduate students, deadlines and procedures vary based on the school. Boston College has a need-blind admissions policy, which means that your ability to pay tuition does not factor into admissions decisions.
Of course, this also means that BC seeks to meet its students’ demonstrated financial need. Boston College offers a variety of financial aid options, including grants, loans, institutional scholarships and student employment. Aside from the Presidential Scholars Program, all BC financial aid is need-based.
67% of students gave Boston College 5 stars overall.
Boston College is a lot of fun if you take advantage of everything going on on campus. Nightlife during the weekend is great, but the happiest students here tend to be those involved in clubs and sports throughout the week. I love it!
Going to college in Boston is GREAT!!! Because there are so many colleges, most of the city is students. BC was great because it was not right in the city but had easy access to get there. I made some wonderful friends with whom I am still close 11 years later. If it weren't for a great professor that I had at BC, I wouldn't be where I am today - which is succeeding in a job that I am truly passionate about.
