Degree Students

Some J-1 students apply through regular undergraduate or graduate admissions, are accepted to one of the degree programs here, and receive a diploma from UMass Dartmouth.  Degree students must be enrolled full-time, working toward a formally-defined program, and remain in good academic standing.  See the ISSC if you have any questions about these requirements. 

Examples of international students who are admitted to a formal degree program at UMass Dartmouth are:

  • students sponsored by their home governments for undergraduate or graduate study;
  • students sponsored by the Fulbright organization.

All degree students receive academic advising from a faculty member.  Degree-seeking students and Fulbright students are assigned to a faculty adviser in their academic department.  The ISSC can refer you to the appropriate University office for issues outside of your academic program.

The ISSC invites J-1 students in degree programs to use us as an on-campus resource in addition to the agency that issued your DS 2019 form.
