Welcome Transfers!

We acknowledge your previous college experience and want to make sure you get off to a great start at UMass Amherst!

While most of the time during your transfer orientation is spent taking care of the business for your first UMass semester, you will also spend time learning about resources, getting to know your new classmates, and discovering your new campus. Transfer orientation is a required program for all incoming transfer students. It is designed to help you make a smooth transition to the university. We are looking forward to meeting you!

If you are entering the university in the fall, register for a summer transfer session. If you are entering in the spring, register for a winter session
