You’re not looking for a traditional college experience. This isn’t one.
You're not a kid. You’re not naive. You're curious. You're passionate. You’re ready. You know this world needs to change and want to be the one to do it.
What you need are the resources and guidance to make your vision a reality. You need cutting-edge skills in problem-solving, critical thinking, collaboration, and leadership—all in a global context for the world you’ll help create.
You don't need to prepare for the real world. You need to prepare to make your mark on it.
The Office of Undergraduate Admission will help you every step of the way. We’ll show you everything from our vibrant campus in downtown Boston and our 70+ academic programs to our global opportunities and student organizations.
Check out our upcoming undergraduate admission events and take a peek at our Viewbook [PDF] for a preview of where your Suffolk University journey might take you.
Suffolk University is Now Test-Optional
We're Here For You
As the world faces the unprecedented challenge of COVID-19, we are committed to protecting the health and safety of the entire Suffolk community. This includes prospective applicants, admitted students, and their families. We have therefore made the following decisions:
- In order to continue welcoming visitors to our campus with safety in mind, we are currently offering limited on-campus visit options including campus tours and interviews. Additionally, we offer many ways to visit campus virtually including our Fall Preview Days, information sessions, guided virtual tours, interviews with admission staff, and much more! You can find more information on our visit page, and we encourage you to to join our mailing list to receive future updates. We look forward to helping you during this process!
- If your school requires IB, A-Levels or a national exam for high school graduation, you can learn more about how Suffolk is adapting our practices
- For international students submitting proof of english proficiency: Suffolk will accept the TOEFL iBT Home Edition version as well as the IELTS Indicator test. Applicants from China can also submit the TOEFL iTP Plus for China, for which our minimum score has been set at a 543. Learn more about our test-flexible policy for International students
- For all current and future high school applicants: if your high school changes their grading scale to Pass/Fail or Credit/No Credit this will not impact your admission and enrollment at Suffolk University. Transcripts will be evaluated for successful completion of coursework and graduation requirements. We ask that sending schools, if able, designate the change on the transcript so the Office of Admission is aware when reviewing final transcripts
- For transfer students: in light of many post-secondary schools transitioning to pass/fail options for coursework, Suffolk is making exceptions to take pass grades for the spring 2020 semester in transfer. You can be assured that if your institution provides this option, your coursework will still count at Suffolk
Please know that the Office of Undergraduate Admission’s staff is available for any questions by phone at 617-573-8460 and by email, or you can reach out directly to Donna Grand Pré, Vice President for Admission & Financial Aid.
