Welcome to UMassD, Transfer Students!

To help familiarize you with the university and prepare you for the upcoming year, these three steps are designed with you in mind!    

  1. Online Orientation: available after you deposit (includes a separate track for Transfers in the "Academics" section)
  2. Virtual Transfer Welcome: Tuesday, June 29
  3. On-campus Transfer Welcome: Thursday, August 26

1.) Online Orientation

The first part of your Orientation experience is Online Orientation, an excellent introduction to the university and contains information vital to a successful start here.

After you make your deposit, you’ll receive an email with instructions on how to log into your myUMassD portal account and complete Online Orientation. It can be completed on a smartphone, tablet, or computer and in multiple sittings or all at once. 

You can share  with family members who wish to access Online Orientation. Note: This login is for guests only. If you complete Online Orientation using this login, you will not receive credit for completing the requirement. Make sure to complete yours via the myUMassD portal.  

2.) Virtual Transfer Welcome: June 29

You’ll get to know your academic college in the next part of your Orientation experience.

Keep an eye on your inbox for an invitation to your Virtual Transfer Welcome. You will be part of a general review for all Transfers followed by break-out sessions for each academic college where you’ll review academic aspects of your university experience. You must attend this zoom webinar for your major. You’ll be notified via your UMassD email account, and updates will be posted on the Orientation website. 

3.) On-campus Transfer Welcome August 26

We’re excited to welcome you to campus before the new first-year students arrive. Whether you’re a commuter or residential Transfer student, you’ll take part in a dynamic day including activities that will help you find your way around campus, meet other new Transfers as well as leaders who have also transferred to UMassD. You’ll be notified via your UMassD email account, and updates will be posted on the Orientation website.
