Welcome to Umass Dartmouth!

New students will need to submit documentation to access_success@umassd.edu. You will need to self-disclose and make an appointment to discuss accommodations even if you have sent documentation to the office or through Admissions with one of our directors. We will start taking appointments for the fall semester 2021 the week of August 23.  You can call 508.999.8711 to make an appointment for whenever is convenient for you.  If no one answers, please leave a message and someone will return your call.   

Remember returning students, you must register each semester for accommodations.  Make an appointment today!

________________________________

Attention students: Start the semester out right!  

Make an appointment with a graduate assistant, Chloe, after you have registered with the Center. These meetings will help you build the skills you need to be successful.  She will tailor these meetings to your personal needs and work with you to keep you on track. Unlike the tutors available in the various academic centers, this program is designed to establish a foundation for your hard-work and ability by covering mixed topics such as time management, organization, breaking assignments into smaller chunks, meeting deadlines, tips for effective studying, organizational skills, how to reduce stress, improving memory skills, and much more. 

Contact CAS for more information and to schedule an appointment: 508-999-8711.
