 Your steps to enrolling

Accept your offer of admission

When you complete your Enrollment Reservation Form and send in your $200 enrollment deposit, this amount is deducted from your fall semester bill. The available seats in the popular majors are filled based on date of deposit; it's a first-come, first-in basis.

Deposits are non-refundable after May 1.

.........................................................................................................................................................

Next step, housing

If you choose to live on campus, please include your $200 housing deposit with your enrollment deposit (for a total of $400). Housing is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. The earlier you return your deposit, the sooner we can reserve your space.

Housing deposits are non-refundable after May 1.

.........................................................................................................................................................

We encourage you to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at www.fafsa.ed.gov in order to be considered for financial aid. List the UMass Dartmouth school code (002210) on your FAFSA so we can receive your information.

Plan to attend Experience UMassD

Plan to attend Experience UMassD on March 29 or April 11, so you can meet current students, faculty, and staff. This is another chance to see what life at UMass Dartmouth is all about.

.........................................................................................................................................................

Activate your UMassD account

After you have paid your enrollment deposit, you will receive an email inviting you to activate your UMassD student account. The subject line will be "UMassD Logon Account Activation." The UMassD Logon is your username and password for email, our "myUMassD" portal, and our "COIN" student information system. It is different from the ID and password you’ve used as an applicant to check application and financial aid status.

Activate Your UMassD Logon

Schedule placement testing

State law requires a placement test in math, and if your academic program requires it, a placement test in a foreign language. These tests enable us to place you in the appropriate courses and have no impact on your admission to the university.

Sign-up begins March 15 for testing that begins in April. You can schedule your placement testing 5 days after your enrollment deposit has been received. Testing must be completed prior to your orientation in June.

Testing lasts approximately one to two hours. Exemption from the tests only occurs if you have received transfer credit for college-level math or college-level foreign language. AP credits do not exempt a student from testing.

  • Visit placement.umassd.edu to register 
  • For questions about online registration, please call: 508.999.8792
  • For other questions regarding testing, please call: 508.999.8455

.........................................................................................................................................................

Send your final transcript to us

Incoming transfer students: Be sure to send your final official college transcript.

Incoming first-year students: Please be sure your final official high school transcript has proof of graduation. If you have taken AP or CLEP exams, please have scores sent to the Registrar's Office to receive credit.

Offers of acceptance to UMass Dartmouth are contingent upon successful completion of all courses in high school and/or college and certification of your high school graduation. If your performance declines significantly, we reserve the right to rescind your acceptance.

If you have questions, please contact Admissions:

Complete health insurance information

Immunization records are required for all full-time students and students enrolled in Nursing and Medical Laboratory Science, on-campus residents, and international students. The immunization forms can be completed online.  

Massachusetts’ Universal Health Insurance Law requires all undergraduate students to be enrolled in the University’s health insurance plan or in a plan with comparable coverage. You will be sent instructions from the Bursar’s Office along with your bill for how to waive or enroll in the university’s health insurance plan. The insurance fee automatically appears on your bill. You must fill out the online waiver stating whether or not you want the insurance.

You may not waive your insurance requirement using Health Safety Net, MassHealth Limited, or Children's Medical Security Plan.

.........................................................................................................................................................

Join us! Attend Orientation in June

The first part of Orientation takes place in June and is based on your academic major. This required two-day event is an important introduction to university life and will be your opportunity to receive academic advising in your major, select courses, and meet orientation leaders and peers. We also offer a program for parents/guardians to answer their questions.

In September, you will attend the second part of Orientation. This provides a chance for the entire incoming class to participate in campus traditions such as Convocation and the Corsair Olympics, while enjoying additional opportunities to meet faculty, staff, and fellow students.

.........................................................................................................................................................

Safety matters

Our objective is for you to achieve your educational goals in a safe and secure environment. The UMass Dartmouth Department of Public Safety is a full-service police department with 24 sworn officers, and is among the best qualified, motivated, supervised, and led police departments in the region. We are pleased to present the UMass Dartmouth Annual Security Report, which provides important information about the safety and security of our campus.
