Boston College’s Protection of Minors program is designed to provide a safe environment for minors when on the Boston College campus, or while participating in University-sponsored activities. This Policy is intended to apply to University-sponsored activities involving minors, and programs for minors sponsored by non-University organizations that operate in University facilities. In order to participate in these programs you are required to follow the instructions below and provide all required information.

Step 1: Massachusetts iCORI Authorization Form

Before proceeding with the online application, you must complete the Massachusetts iCORI Authorization Form. This form is vital for the criminal background check. There are two ways to verify your identity on this form:

Option 1: Verification by a Boston College Employee

  • Take the iCORI form to your Program Administrator at Boston College.
  • Present your government-issued photo ID in person.
  • The Program Administrator will complete the subject verification section of the form, confirming your identity.

Option 2: Notarized by a Notary Public

  • Visit a Notary Public with the iCORI form and your government-issued photo ID.
  • The Notary Public will notarize the form, officially verifying your identity.

Important: After completing the form through either option, scan and save a copy of the form. This digital copy will be required for upload during the online application process.

Step 2: Online Application

  • Access the online application portal.
  • Select the Youth Program you are applying to.
  • Note: The application must be completed in one sitting and cannot be saved as a draft.

To continue with the Online application - please choose the program you are participating in to initiate the background investigation process.
