Winter Transfer Registration

New Students Orientation is the best way for transfer students to meet the people and learn about the requirements and resources that will help you make decisions about your first semester as a UMass Amherst student.

During orientation you will:

  • Make connections with classmates, student leaders, academic advisors, and other university staff members.

  • Take part in a variety of presentations and activities to help you better understand

    • academic expectations for the university, your college, and your major to guide you on the path to graduation;

    • opportunities for engagement in university life to create a balanced experience; and

    • the values, community standards, and responsibilities that keep our university safe, healthy, and welcoming for all.

More information about orientation for students entering in the spring will be available later this fall, usually in November.
