Additional Information:

Please note: those of you who are coming from abroad as international students must also attend mandatory orientations with the International Programs Office; please check here for the schedule:  https://www.umass.edu/ipo/iss/arrivals-and-orientation. IPO should be contacting you separately via email with important information about their orientation, your visa documents, and other things that are relevant to your study here at UMass.

All university graduate students will also attend mandatory orientation activities with the Graduate School. The Graduate School will be contacting you directly with more information.

Finally, the Graduate School has posted a useful “New Student To-Do” list on their website. This list includes a lot of helpful information about life here at the university: https://www.umass.edu/gradschool/sites/default/files/New_Student_To-Do_List.pdf

We’re looking forward to seeing you in the fall!
