Welcome to student life page! Here you will have one stop access to managing your degree. If you have not yet completed the new student orientation; you are encouraged to complete it now. Please contact the department to request the orientation modules link.
Below is a listing of many useful forms available for download. If you need a form that is not on this list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All students enrolled within the University of Massachusetts Amherst are required to abide by the rules and regulations outlined in the official Graduate Student Bulletin. As an online student, some rules will apply to you and some will not. For instance: on-campus students must carry health insurance and provide proof of this or enroll in the insurance program offered through the University. Online students are exempt from this rule.
The most important section is the policies and regulations section. This includes procedures for taking a semester off, withdrawing from the University, grading, transferring credits, and privacy issues. I invite you to read through the bulletin and, if you have questions, feel free to contact us.
Here are a few things to remember as an online student:
