Admissions Overview

Applying to UMass IMS program

The University of Massachusetts Intercampus Marine Science graduate program offers a high-quality education with the affordability of a public university. The excellent faculty and variety of resources offered by the University of Massachusetts multi-campus system make the IMS graduate program an excellent choice.

Applicants should apply to any of the following UMass campuses based on his/her research interests. A separate application is required for each UMass campus you are considering as your home (main) campus. Information about the application process for each school is linked below.

Admissions process & procedures

The applications, admission procedures, and financial matters (such as tuition, fees, expenses, financial aid, stipends) are all handled by the graduate studies department of the selected ‘home’ campus. Because applications are handled by individual campus, we strongly advise that interested students contact the IMS campus coordinator on the selected ‘home’ campus before applying.

Faculty advisors

Please note that it is important that interested students take an active role in also contacting faculty member(s) who could potentially advise them, as well as making an effort to seek funding before applying to IMS. You must have an advisor to attend IMS. We have a limited number of TA positions, research assistantships, and teaching assistantships and to be considered you must submit your applications before the deadline.
