Start on Track

Congratulations on your acceptance to UMass Boston, and welcome!

Whether you are an incoming freshman or transfer student, orientation will help you to transition into the UMass Boston campus life. You will be introduced to academic and social opportunities, learn about degree requirements and register for your first semester of courses.  Most new students also need a math and writing assessment.  These results will aid in the course selection process.
