Transfer Credit

The chairperson of the department to which you matriculate will determine the final evaluation of your transfer credit. This will be posted to your portal as soon as it is available.

Transfer Registration

Transfer Registration is required for all accepted students. You will meet with a transfer coordinator who will help you choose courses and provide the most direct path to degree completion. You can sign up for transfer registration after you declare your intent to enroll at UMass Lowell.

Transfer Alliance Program

The Transfer Alliance Program (TAP) is here to help make your transition to UMass Lowell as smooth as possible, ensuring that you get everything you need to be successful from the start. When you join TAP, for your entire first semester, you’ll be paired with a transfer student who has already successfully transitioned to the UMass Lowell community. You'll also have access to success workshops, faculty and alumni networking opportunities and more.
