2023 New Student Experience

Registration for Ready for the U is now open for students admitted for Spring 2023 who paid their enrollment deposit. Click the Register button to access the registration site.

Here are some tips for registration:

  • Once you select your Ready for the U date, you cannot change it.

  • Please keep in mind other important commitments and events like travel, and work.

  • Make sure you talk with your family and supporters before selecting a Ready for the U date.

  • Choose a session that does not conflict with any other commitments so that you can attend the full program.

  • Once you have selected your date and completed your registration, make sure to add the dates and travel time needed to your calendar and set a reminder in your phone.

Students must be registered for Ready for the U by January 1, 2023


New Student Advising & Course Registration for Spring 2023 students takes place in January. After completing the Guide to the U and registering for Ready for the U, students will receive an email in their UMass email account from their advisors. Please make sure you select a New Student Advising & Course Registration appointment that does not conflict with your Ready for the U date. You will not be able to register for classes at or during Ready for the U.
