Academics are the core of the undergraduate experience. That’s why it’s important to learn more about them right from the beginning. In this section, you’ll find information on advising, schools and colleges, your graduation requirements, how to transfer credit  to UMass Amherst including AP and SAT Subject credit,  and which placement tests you need to prepare for attending Summer or Winter NSO.

Of course we’re going to review these details with you during your orientation, but by reading ahead of time, you’ll be much more prepared to take in the advice of our student leaders and your advisors. You might even think of a few questions you want to ask during your advising appointment!
