Make @umass.edu a safe sender / domain

To ensure that you can receive email messages from Undergraduate Admissions and other UMass departments and staff members, make sure that UMass has the email address you use most often on file.

Note: We recommend not using a school email address, since some schools block outside emails, and you may not have access to that address after graduating.

We also recommend that you add the @umass.edu domain to your email safe senders, so that important admission messages don't get caught in your spam filter.
