Admitted Students Checklist
Congratulations on your admission and welcome! Please use this page to help you along your way to becoming a UMass Boston student. Good luck and please let us know how we can help!
This is important: Return your $200 deposit to hold your place at the university, to clear you to sign up for orientation, and to register for classes.
At Beacon Beginnings: New Student Orientation you’ll work with student orientation leaders, a group of upperclassmen trained to help you transition to the university. You’ll also make some new friends and receive valuable advising on registering for your first-semester courses.
To be ready for the start of classes, you are required to provide proof of immunization compliance by returning an immunization form to Health Services.
Also, you must participate in a school-sponsored qualifying Student Health Program or an alternate health plan with comparable coverage.
Connect with other newly accepted students and get updates posted to your feed.
Where you choose to live will play an important part in your overall experience at UMass Boston. The Office of Student Housing can help you find roommates and a place to call home.
Be sure to keep up on financial aid, as well as student employment and scholarship opportunities.
UMass Boston has some great places to enjoy full meals or to just grab a snack on your way to class. The SOGO Cash Card ensures you always have funds set aside for food.
UMass Boston offers over 100 student-run clubs and hundreds more special activities sponsored both on campus and off.
If you're joining UMass Boston from another country, be sure to pay attention to all your important next steps after you have been admitted to the university.
