Welcome to All

We carefully review each application on an individual basis, considering such factors as academic performance, recommendations, test scores and personal achievement, as well as any special circumstances which may have affected an applicant’s prior academic record.

BSU welcomes students of every race, ethnicity, nationality, religion, age, sex and ability.

We accept applications on a rolling basis throughout the year, though some programs set firm deadlines. Please check with your program of choice.
