Student Checklist

Freshman Students

  1. Review the Documents for Admitted Students.
  2. Let us know whether or not you will accept our offer of admission by letting us know your decision. You'll find a link to do so on your acceptance letter. If you accept, you will pay the non-refundable $500 enrollment fee online at that time. 
  3. Once your enrollment fee has been processed, you can register for New Students Orientation. Registration for the spring session opens mid-November, and fall sessions will open in mid-February.
  4. Request that your official final high school transcript (with graduation certification) be sent to the Admissions Office (mail@admissions.umass.edu). 

NOTE:  Admitted international students should follow the guidelines provided here. Shortly after admission, international students will receive an email from the International Programs Office. It is very important that students follow those instructions carefully when providing financial documentation to the International Programs Office.
