Transfers: Accepted for Fall


Apply to one of our top programs, like Animation & Game Arts and our Charlton business programs.

Congratulations and welcome to the UMassD community! We’re excited to be part of your educational journey.

1 Accept your offer

When you complete the intent to enroll form, you can pay your enrollment deposit online or you can mail it to: 

Undergraduate Admissions Office
285 Old Westport Road
Dartmouth, MA 02747-2300

The $200 enrollment deposit amount is deducted from your university bill. Available seats in the popular majors are filled based on date of deposit.

International students

We've developed a custom checklist for you. If you are an international transfer student, visit the international accepted page.

2 Reserve your spot in housing

If you choose to live on campus, reserve your place today. Include an additional $200 deposit with your enrollment deposit—for a total of $400. Housing is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. The earlier you return your deposit, the sooner we can reserve your space. Communications from the housing office will go to your UMass Dartmouth email. Deposits are non-refundable after June 1 and are deducted from tuition and fees on your university bill. You will receive a separate bill for your housing charges.

3 Activate your UMassD login

After you’ve deposited, activate your login for access to your email, portal, and more. You'll need your ID—that can be found in your accept letter—and to set up multifactor authentication with the Duo mobile app to activate your login.

4 Next Steps: After you make your deposit

Here are your next steps. Keep an eye on your email (your personal email and your new UMassD email); we'll be sending you updates and information regularly to help you get ready for fall. Go Corsairs!

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!
