(Updated Aug. 18, 2020)
To maintain active status at the university, students are required to be enrolled in at least one course.
New undergraduate (first-year and transfer) students who choose to withdraw from the university prior to the first day of classes will need to re-enroll to enter during a future semester. To cancel fall course enrollments and withdraw from the university, new undergraduate students should email Fall2020Withdrawal@registrar.umass.edu with their SPIRE ID number and state their intention to withdraw.
The Application for Re-enrollment is due Oct. 15, 2020 to re-enter in Spring 2021 and March 15, 2021 to return in Fall 2021. The Re-enrollment Fee of $60 will be waived for on-time applications received from undergraduate students who were admitted for Fall 2020.
Continuing undergraduate students (students who entered before Fall 2020) can withdraw from the university by completing the End of Term Withdrawal section in Spire now, and by submitting an Application for Re-enrollment by Oct. 15, 2020 if they wish to enroll in Spring 2021, or March 15, 2021 for Fall 2021. Advising about course selection for continuing undergraduate students will begin in October for the Spring 2021 semester. Academic advisors and Financial Aid staff can assist students as they consider plans for timely degree completion. Continuing students who withdrew from the university between July 1, 2020 and Aug. 24, 2020 will be eligible for a fee waiver if they re-enroll prior to March 15, 2021.
