COVID tour cancellations

We are cancelling our Information Sessions and Campus Tours through June 15.

At that time, we will reassess the situation with COVID-19 and resume our events if the situation allows. For now, please visit our Virtual Experience for Prospective Students page to get much of the information you would have received during an on-campus visit.

Info Sessions and Campus Tours

Interested in applying? Learn more about the application and review process from one of our Admissions representatives during a 40-minute information session.

First-year information sessions are followed by a student-led, 90-minute walking tour to learn all about the UMass campus. For transfers, the information session follows the tour. Check out the Visitors Center website to get more information on session times, registration, and important details for your visit.
