that is right for you 

The ONCAMPUS Boston staff leads students through the transfer application process step by step. Students learn how to complete every step of the application process together in a computer lab – including listing activities, ordering official college transcripts, assigning faculty recommendations, and requesting a college official’s report.  

With so many choices, it can be a challenge for any student to determine what is best for them. The staff at ONCAMPUS Boston provides transfer advising to help you understand this complex process. We look forward to seeing you in classes soon.

Clothing 

Boston has four seasons: Winter, spring, summer, and fall. The temperatures change dramatically for each season. The fall tends to be warm to cool and the winter is very cold and snow. You may want to wear layers during the colder months and be sure to bring or buy a winter coat. Some students chose to bring all of their clothes for the year or you can bring enough for the first half of the year, and bring more when you return from winter break.
