Is your child thinking of transferring to Boston College? If so, you might want to check out historical BC transfer admissions statistics. Annually, BC anticipates enrolling around 125 transfer students. Most will enroll during the fall semester. A class of approximately 40 other transfer students will enroll each January.

But we know you want more BC transfer admissions data. Don’t worry. We won’t let you down. Below, we’ve got BC’s transfer admissions statistics — broken down by gender and overall applicants — for each of the last five years. So let’s dive in!

BC Transfer Acceptance Rates and Statistics by Gender

Before 2021-2022, Boston College published transfer applicant statistics by gender as either male or female. In the 2021-2022 Common Data Set, BC reported one applicant who did not identify with either gender. Hey, BC’s a proud Jesuit institution. But they’re getting with the times!
