Transfer Students

You have two option for Transfer Registration: an accelerated registration program or an on-campus registration program.

Option 1 - Transfer Accelerated Registration Program

Students who select this program will complete a two-step process, minimizing the amount of time needed on campus to prepare for the start of the semester.

  1. Step One: Complete an online tutorial (approximately 20 minutes)
  2. Step Two: Come to campus to meet with an adviser and register for classes
Click on any session that matches your college to sign up for it! We offer this program both early in November and before classes start in January. Once you have been registered for your session, you'll be able to sign up for the Transfer Online Tutorial. You must complete this online tutorial before coming to campus.

Option 2 - On-Campus Transfer Registration Program

These half-day programs are designed to connect your with your academic adviser, get you registered for classes, set up with your student ID, familiarize you with our campus life, and explore what it means to be a student at UMass Lowell. Please plan on being here for at least four hours.

On-campus Transfer Registration sessions check-in on North Campus at 8:30 a.m. There, you will be greeted by Orientation Leaders who will get you set up for the day.

Re-admitted students are welcome to participate in any part of the Transfer Registration program, especially if you have been out of school for a while, however it is not mandatory.



All new transfer students are required to complete the Registration process before enrolling for classes. There are multiple sessions available for each major. We encourage you to select the earliest date that fits in your schedule.

Students who cannot attend any of the dates above should reach out to our office by email: Orientation@uml.edu.
