How to Apply
We are so excited that you're ready to apply! Follow the steps below to apply.
- Submit a MassTransfer application
- Send us your official transcripts from all colleges attended
Request that all the colleges/universities you have attended send an official transcript directly to Undergraduate Admissions. Photocopies, student copies, emailed electronic college transcripts are not acceptable.
Every school may have a slightly different process to request official transcripts but generally you can visit the Registrar’s Office website from your previous schools to request to have your official transcripts sent to UMass Amherst. In order for transcripts to be considered official, they must be sent directly from your previous institution to UMass Amherst.
If you have attended more than one college/university, you must have official transcripts sent from each school (whether or not credit is desired).
Many schools use electronic transcript services such as National Student Clearinghouse or Parchment to send official transcripts. If your school uses one of these services and you need to provide a UMass Amherst email to receive the transcript, please use email@example.com.
If your school needs to send an official paper copy of your transcripts, please have the transcripts sent to:
