Welcome to UMass Amherst
To best meet the needs of our incoming students while still maintaining recommended social distancing practices, all summer orientation programming will be conducted online. We are replacing the in person June and July orientation sessions with a phased orientation model that combines remote academic advising & course registration, an expanded online orientation course, and more transition programming in the fall. The new student checklist will guide you through the steps you need to take before, during, and after orientation. We are here to help so feel free to call or email us with any questions!
