Next Steps…

Traveling to the US

Before arrival

International Students and Scholars must adhere to U.S. government requirements before and upon entering the U.S. Review pre-arrival requirements and recommendations.

After arrival

There are several important things to take care of once you've arrived on campus


We recommend that ALCI students live on campus

ALCI students are not required to live on campus. However, it is critical for you to make some type of housing arrangements before arriving on campus.  

UMass Pass

UMass Pass is the official UMass Dartmouth identification card. This is the one card you'll need to carry on campus and is your pass for: 

  • Entering your residence hall
  • Checking out books and media at the Library
  • Access to the Fitness Center
  • Access to dining on campus

In addition, UMass Pass is also a valid form of payment at popular off-campus locations
