On the Spot Decision
The four-year scholarship covers full tuition and fees, as well as food and housing for high-achieving first-year students from Massachusetts. Learn more about the Founders' Scholarship at UMass Dartmouth.
School counselors and representatives can schedule on-the-spot decisions with a UMass Dartmouth admissions counselor—available on our campus or at your school for students applying for the upcoming fall semester.
At UMass Dartmouth
In addition to your students meeting with a counselor for a conditional admissions decision, on-campus On-the-Spot Decision Days include a campus tour and complementary lunch at our dining hall.

At your school
Prefer for a UMassD admissions counselor to come to your school? Fill out our request form to schedule a visit.
Note: School visits for on-the-spot decisions are only available for schools in New England.
- Students should apply via the Common App prior to the appointment.
- Transcripts must be available for review.
- Encourage your students to complete their FAFSA using our school code: 002210
If students are unable to finish their application before the appointment, we’ll still be able to give them a preliminary decision.
Decisions are made on the assumption that if students apply after the session with the same information provided in the on-the-spot session, the decision will be honored.
Note: We are unable to offer on-the-spots for graduate and online applicants.
