UMass Dartmouth awards institutional funds on a first-come, first-serve basis. You are encouraged to file your FAFSA before April 1 for maximum consideration.
- Set up your FSA ID. You won't be able to complete a FAFSA without one, so set one up now to be prepared.
- Determine if anyone else needs to set up their own FSA ID. Dependent students will need at least one, potentially two parents and independent students may need to have a spouse create an FSA ID.
If you were invited to join the Honors College, accept the invitation by completing the confirmation form found in your invitation email. Please do so as soon as possible because space is limited.
Please note: some of the below tasks may not be available until March or April.

Look for a work-study or non-work study job on campus. Working on campus is a wonderful way to get involved in the campus community.

Check out the Campus Store
Find some UMassD gear and show your campus pride.
Make sure you have completed and submitted your FAFSA to UMass Dartmouth - school code is 002210.

April is a great time to apply for scholarships. All students are encouraged to complete the UMassD General Scholarship Application. This single application allows you to be considered for multiple scholarships. Deadline dates vary; applications cannot be accepted after the deadline. The Corsair Scholarship Portal can be found on Financial Aid Services. Your login information is the same as your my.umassd.edu login.
Your Admitted Student Day is a chance to meet UMassD faculty and students, learn about student life, explore academic programs, and get financial aid advice.
If you’ve chosen to live on campus, you can start the housing application soon after you have submitted your deposit and activated your UMassD account. The Housing and Residential Education Office will send you an email to your UMass Dartmouth email account when you have been set up to access the housing application, within the Housing Portal.
When can I choose a room? How do I choose a roommate? What are “engagement communities” and how do I choose one?
The first step is to sign the housing contract, enter emergency contacts, and other information such as ADA Accommodations, and then you’ll be on your way to roommate matching or requests. Once you gain access to the Housing Portal (information emailed to your UMassD email address), you’ll find a “New Students” section with links and information to get started, as well as helpful videos from the housing team to walk you through the process!
June 1: beginning today, deposits are non-refundable.
