UMass Boston


The Registrar's Office is the keeper of the university's academic policies. These policies are designed to help both students and faculty navigate the rules and regulations of the university, from knowing the limit of how many courses one can take a semester, to understanding FERPA, a student's right to privacy and secure their information.
