University Advising Center

Maybe you're a new first time college student or a new transfer student ready to start on track.  Or, a continuing or returning student who needs to stay on track.  The University Advising Center is here for you.

We serve all UMass Boston students, no matter how decided or undecided you are about what steps to take.

We work with you from day one to help you navigate the paths open to you and help you focus on results. 

We know life happens  and can bring roadblocks. Turn to us if things get overwhelming. We’ll help you sort out what’s important. We’ll be your bridge to other available campus resources.  

What will you gain? All the benefits of a well-thought-out college education. It’s not just about job or career advancement – it’s about gaining new insights and perspectives, strengthening social responsibility, locally and globally, improving quality of life, and learning how to learn for the rest of your life.

Where do you start?

If you’re new to UMass Boston, start with Start on Track. You’ll find what you need to go from there.

If you’re a continuing student, start with Stay on Track — but be sure to visit all the other areas for helpful resources.

If you’re returning to UMass Boston after an absence, visit the Office of the Registrar

If you're a second degree student, start here
