Common Application Transfer College Report or UMass Amherst Transfer Disciplinary Report
After reviewing application materials, transfer counselors may additionally require a Common Application Transfer College Report (available on the Common Application website) or a UMass Amherst Transfer Disciplinary Report to determine if applicants have a disciplinary history at any of the FOUR-YEAR colleges or universities they have previously attended and, only if living on-campus, two year colleges. Without this information, their applications will be considered incomplete.
Criminal Record Check
If the nature of an applicant’s criminal history results in a positive response to the application criminal history question, then applicants are asked to provide (1) a statement which includes the location and approximate date of each incident and explains the circumstances, and (2) a signed Open Access Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) Acknowledgement Form (if incident/s occurred in MA only) and/or Criminal Record Check report (if incident/s occurred in other states). UMass Amherst will use the CORI Acknowledgement Form to produce a CORI report. Report processes for other states will vary. Student applications will be considered incomplete without these documents.
Disciplinary Question Response Form
All applicants are required to provide responses to questions about their disciplinary and criminal history. When this section is left blank on application forms, those applications are considered incomplete. This form may be used to provide information about disciplinary and criminal history.

Students who have not been enrolled in college course work for one or more semesters after high school graduation must provide an explanation about the reason for the gap/s in their education. This may take the form of a resume, a list of activities, or an essay.
Mid-Term Grades Form
After reviewing application materials, transfer counselors may additionally require mid-term grades to determine general admissibility or admissibility to a particular major.
