Admissions Requirements

Admission for all students is determined in accordance with minimum standards established by the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education (DHE). However, meeting the DHE's minimum standards does not guarantee admission, since the university considers a wide range of factors when making admission decisions. All offers of admission are contingent upon completion of current coursework at a level consistent with admissions standards. Please note that all documents submitted with an application for admission are the property of UMass Amherst and cannot be released to the student or to another party.
