Transfer Students

All new transfer students are required to complete the Transfer Registration process before enrolling for classes. Transfer Registration can be completed one of two ways: the two-step Transfer Accelerated Registration Program, or an on-campus Transfer Registration Day. There are multiple sessions available for each major. We encourage you to select the earliest date that fits in your schedule.

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.

Option 1 - Transfer Accelerated Registration Program

Students who select this program will be able to complete part of the Orientation process online, only coming on campus briefly to meet with an advisor and register for classes after the online portion is complete.

  1. Step One: Complete an online tutorial (approximately 20 minutes)
  2. Step Two: Come to campus to meet with an advisor and register for classes

Click on any session that matches your college to sign up for it! We offer this program on various dates from November through January. Once you have registered for your session, you'll will be able to complete 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 advisor, 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 rest of the day.
