Now that you have decided to attend the university, here are the next steps to get you started toward your degree

  1. Attend One of Our Events: We'd love to see you on campus or at an accepted student event.

  2. Choose and Register for Classes: Once you have set up your student email account and SiS account, use the Schedule Builder to pick your classes and register. You can search courses by semester, department, career, campus and course availability.

    Tutorials and manuals for assistance with the Student SiS

  3. Submit all final, official transcripts: If, at the time of applying, you were finishing courses or your degree had not yet been awarded, you will need to have your updated transcripts submitted to UMass Lowell's Graduate Admission Office before the start of your first semester.

  4. Sign up for New Graduate Student Orientation:Orientation provides valuable information about university resources, programs and events on campus, as well as graduate academic policies. Meet staff from the library and graduate programs offices and current graduate students.
