Get a Head Start on Your First Year at UMass

For students planning to start at UMass Amherst in Fall 2023, we invite you to “Jump In” to your college career this summer. Jump In is a six-week program designed to give you a head start on your academics and provide you with the foundations for a successful transition to college.

You can participate in this fully online program from anywhere, including our Mount Ida campus in Newton, MA, where you can live close to Boston while accessing the program virtually with other students living at Mount Ida.

Jump In is offered through University Without Walls, an academic unit of UMass Amherst that supports online and flexible learning for students at all stages of their academic careers.

What students are saying...

"Jump In was a learning experience that helped me gain knowledge, information, and the ability to participate in college-level courses." 

"Jump In was a good way to get introduced to college and get a head start on your degree." 

"Jump In is a good way to take care of the First Year Seminar requirement and get a gen ed out of the way. It is rather fast-paced, but still very manageable."
