Pay New Student Deposit

Ready to join UMass Boston?

To secure your spot at UMass Boston you must submit your $200 New Student Deposit. This deposit will be applied to your first semester bill.

We recommend that you submit your deposit as soon as possible. The deposit deadline is:

  • May 1 (summer or fall semester).
  • December 1 (spring semester). 

The deposit is refundable by written request to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions only prior to this deadline.

If you are a Directions for Student Potential (DSP) student, you are exempt from the deposit.  Please confirm your intention to enroll in the DSP program and sign up for assessment and orientation.
