UMass Amherst will process late applications, as well as on-time applications completed late, without guarantee and on a space-available basis. As long as we have space available in our entering class, we may continue to make late offers of admission. However, once we fill our entering class, we no longer review late applications or on-time applications which are completed late, even if they were submitted prior to the time we filled our entering class.
