 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 spring semester bill.

Deposits are non-refundable after January 1.

You will receive an email from the university inviting you to activate your online student account: your UMassD Logon username and password for email and other student systems.

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

Planning to live on campus?

If you choose to live on campus, please include your $200 housing deposit with your enrollment deposit (for a total $400). The earlier you pay your housing deposit, the sooner we can reserve your space.

Housing deposits are non-refundable after January 1.

Once you’ve made your housing deposit, notify Housing & Residential Education (housing@umassd.edu) who will email instructions for completing and signing your housing contract. You'll need your UMassD Logon to complete the contract.

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

Apply for financial aid

We encourage you to complete the 2014-2015 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.

John and Abigail Adams Scholarship recipients: Please send a copy of your scholarship award letter to:

University Enrollment Center
UMass Dartmouth
285 Old Westport Road
Dartmouth, MA 02747-2300

We must confirm your eligibility with your prior school before we can award the scholarship.

MassTransfer students: If you are eligible for the MassTransfer tuition waiver, it will be applied to your bill once final transcripts and date of graduation have been reviewed, and after spring semester add/drop period ends. 

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

Register for 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 into the appropriate courses, and have no impact on your admission to the university.

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

Placement testing will be conducted at Orientation and lasts approximately one hour. You can register for placement testing 5 days after your enrollment deposit has been received.

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

Sent your final transcript to us

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

Incoming freshmen: Please make sure your final official high school transcript includes proof of graduation. If you have taken AP or CLEP examinations, 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, students enrolled in Nursing and Medical Laboratory Science, on-campus residents, and international students. The immunization forms will be mailed to you, or you can download the health forms from the Student Health Services website.

Massachusetts’ Universal Health Insurance Law requires all undergraduate students 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: January 22, 2015

An important important introduction to university life, Orientation is mandatory and provides your first opportunity to receive academic advising in your major, select courses, and meet fellow students.

Sessions include financial aid, living on campus, commuting, getting involved, and photos for the UMassPass (student ID)—plus options for tours and visits to the campus store and parking office.

See you soon!
