Go Beyond with BSU

We support prospective students applying for admission as degree-seeking day students into our more than 100 bachelor’s degree programs and concentrations at Bridgewater State University. These webpages provide the information you need to apply for undergraduate admission as a first-year, transfer, international or dual enrollment student.

If you were previously enrolled as an undergraduate student and left BSU, you can reapply for either reinstatement or readmission. Those interested in our fully-inclusive postsecondary program for individuals with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities should apply to the EXCEL Program.
