Now that your student is a Corsair, you, too, are part of the UMass Dartmouth family.  The Office of New Student and Family Programs welcomes you to our community. We are so excited that your student has chosen UMassD, and we are looking forward to meeting you all. 

This year we will be shifting our orientation online to provide you and your student with the necessary connections, supports, and tools to be successful at UMassD. Virtually, we will be providing resources to you to help your student transition from high school to university life.

Online orientation

Your student has access to this required first step, but did you know that you, too, have access to UMassD's Online Orientation? 

Online Orientation

This multi-faceted experience is a great resource for information for you both. While this experience has been created with your student in mind, we believe you will find it helpful as well. You can access the online orientation at any time and watch as many times as you need.
