If you choose to live on campus, please include your $200 housing deposit with your enrollment deposit above—for a total of $400. Housing is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

Your to-do list
After you make your deposit
After you have paid your enrollment deposit, you will receive an email inviting you to activate your UMassD student account—with the subject line "UMassD Logon Account Activation." Email invitations will be sent beginning in March.
The UMassD Logon is your username and password for email, our "myUMassD" portal, and our "COIN" student information system. It is different from the ID and password you've used as an applicant to check application and financial aid status.
If you are currently studying in the U.S. as a high school or college student, you must transfer your SEVIS I-20 or DS 2019 to UMass Dartmouth.
More information: transferring from another school in the U.S.
Incoming first-year students: Be sure your final official high school transcript has proof of graduation. If you have taken IB, AP, or CLEP exams, please have scores sent to the Admisssions Office for review of credit.

Dual enrollment students: Please send your official college transcript in addition to your official high school transcript.
Offers of acceptance to UMass Dartmouth are contingent upon successful completion of all courses in high school and/or college and certification of your high school graduation. If your performance declines significantly, we reserve the right to rescind your acceptance.
Health insurance: Massachusetts State Law requires all undergraduate students enrolled in a minimum of 9 credits have insurance in the university’s health insurance plan or in a plan with comparable coverage. You will receive instructions from the Bursar’s Office along with your bill for how to waive or enroll in the university’s health insurance plan. The insurance fee automatically appears on your bill. You must complete the online waiver stating whether or not you want the insurance.
You may not waive your insurance requirement using Health Safety Net, MassHealth Limited, Children's Medical Security Plan or a non-U.S. based plan. Students with F-1 visas will automatically be enrolled in the university's health insurance plan.
Immunizations: Immunization records are required for all full-time students, students enrolled in Nursing and Medical Laboratory Science, on-campus residents, and international students. Please go to the Student Health Portal and sign in using your UMassD Logon to obtain and complete your health forms.
Orientation is an important introduction to university life. It will be your opportunity to receive academic advising in your major, select courses, and meet Orientation Leaders and peers.
Our objective is for you to achieve your educational goals in a safe and secure environment.
