I hope that your senior year has begun well and that you are making progress with your college applications. Thank you for your interest in Boston College.
Recently, it has come to my attention that there is confusion surrounding Boston College’s Restrictive Early Action program. This is because REA is defined differently by the colleges that practice it.
Restrictive Early Action at Boston College permits students to apply to other colleges under Early Action or Regular Decision programs. REA applicants to Boston College may not apply to a binding Early Decision program, since that student could not consider an REA offer of admission from Boston College if admitted to the Early Decision program. Click here to learn more about our Restrictive Early Action policy.
I hope this policy is clear. Please feel welcome to call our office (1-800-360-2522) if we can be of further assistance. Best wishes to you and your family.
