“Transferring to UMass Boston was the best decision I ever made,” Rebeca Cortazio, Class of 2016  

Nearly 3,000 new college transfer students are selected to continue their college studies at the University of Massachusetts Boston each year.

Transfer students' reasons for coming and the paths they've taken to get to UMass Boston vary widely, but they all seem to have discovered something at Boston's public research university that they couldn’t find elsewhere.

What Makes You a Transfer Student at UMass Boston?
