Welcome to UMass Lowell

You can be proud to join this vibrant community of students who are ready to make their mark on the world!

Checklist for Incoming Students:

  • Send in your enrollment response form and $300 enrollment deposit to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
  • Complete a housing contract along with a $200 housing deposit to the Office of Residence Life.
  • Send completed health forms and immunization records to Student Health Services at least 30 days before classes start.
  • File the FAFSA to qualify for financial aid. The priority deadline is March 1. Students applying after March 1 will receive aid as funds become available.
  • Sign up for a required Freshman Orientation or Transfer Registration Day program.
  • Schedule an appointment for Assessment Testing before your orientation session. Math and reading assessments are done before orientation. Writing assessments are done at orientation.

  • Review the meal plan options to see which one best suits your needs and schedule. Students living on campus will select a residential meal plan through the housing gateway after submitting their housing deposit. Commuter meal plans and River Hawk Dollars can be purchased online.
