UMass Amherst will process late applications, as well as on-time applications completed late, without guarantee and on a space-available basis. As long as there is space available in the entering class, we may continue to make late offers of admission. However, once the entering class is filled, we no longer review late applications or on-time applications which are completed late, even if they were submitted prior to the time we filled our entering class.
