Navitas at UMassD offers an alternative pathway to the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth for international students who may not qualify for direct entry and who seek a supportive study environment.

The Navitas Undergraduate Pathway Program (UPP) is equivalent to the first year of a UMass Dartmouth bachelor's degree program. When you successfully complete this stage, you can move directly into the second year of your undergraduate degree.
