Requirements for Transferring Students

You’re not just a GPA and SAT number when applying to UMass Amherst. To be admitted, each aspect of every application is considered, including the courses taken at other schools, what areas each student excels in, where they don’t, etc. Here at UMass, our goal is to prepare you to succeed.
