Welcome to UMass Amherst
To best meet the needs of our incoming students while still maintaining recommended social distancing practices, orientation programming will be conducted online. We are replacing the in person orientation sessions with a phased orientation model that combines remote academic advising & course registration, an expanded online orientation course, and more transition programming. 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 email us with any questions or submit a call back request.
More specific information about online orientation for students enrolling in the spring semester will be available starting in November.
