In efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19, UMass Summer Programs has suspended all in-person programs for summer 2020. Information regarding remote learning options will be posted online and communicated to all current applicants and accepted students soon.

UMass Summer Programs continues to operate remotely. If you need assistance, please contact us at As the situation rapidly evolves, please visit for the most up-to-date information. 


Academic Programs

Pre-college programs at UMass combine all the major elements of college, including great academics, living in a residence hall, and eating in our award-winning dining commons. Of course, it takes a little help to adjust to life on a college campus, so we have great live-in program assistants who are specially trained to help you get used to a new environment, both geographic and social. We have lots of great events in the evenings and on weekends that help you connect with other pre-college students.
