  • Does this mean I will spend two more years in High School?

    Yes. But these two additional years will equip you with skills that will better prepare you for the future, whether it be; Kolehiyo, Trabaho or Negosyo!

  • Admission Requirements

    Our international students follow the same application requirements as our first-year or transfer applicants.

    • Test Requirements
      • All international students must meet the same testing requirements as our first-year or transfer students.
      • We require the TOEFL examination or the IELTS for all international applicants whose primary native language is not English and who attend a secondary school outside of the U.S. Minimum scores of 100 on the iBT or 7.5 on the IELTS are recommended. Boston College's Institutional Testing Code is 3083. The Department Code is 00. A score of 600 or above on the SAT EBRW or 27 or better on the ACT English section waives the TOEFL/IELTS requirement.
      • If you have attended a U.S. high school for at least three years, and you are enrolled in a traditional academic curriculum without ESOL coursework, the TOEFL or IELTS exam is not required. If you feel further evidence of your English skills will enhance your application, you are still welcome to send those test scores.
