Pre-College: Undergraduate Courses
Current high school seniors are welcome to enroll in online undergraduate courses during the Spring 2021 semester.
Students will earn college credit in regularly scheduled UMass courses alongside undergraduate students. Coursework is rigorous, and high school students will be held to the same standards as their undergraduate classmates, so students should come prepared for a challenge.
Courses carry 3-4 college credits each. On completion of the course, students will be able to obtain an official UMass transcript.
Course Listings and Self-Enrollment
Students can browse available courses and self-enroll through the UWW website: Spring 2021 Classes.
Online Course Delivery
Undergraduate courses at UMass are delivered through either Blackboard Learn or Moodle. Instructors will post the course syllabus, lecture recordings, readings, assignments and exams to Blackboard/Moodle. Students can view lectures on their own schedules, and complete readings and assignments within a structured time frame provided by the instructor. Interaction with the instructor and other students takes place in a variety of ways: discussion boards, announcements, email, or Zoom.
Some courses may include a synchronous (live) meeting component. Any live meetings will be noted on the course syllabus.
