APPLYING TO A DEGREE OR CERTIFICATE PROGRAm

Access Your UMass Lowell Student Email Account

After you submit your Non-Degree Course Registration Form to the Registrar's Office, your information is entered into the university's student information system (SiS), and a UMass Lowell student email account will be generated for you (please allow 1-2 business days for processing). This is the email address where all official university communication will be sent. If you provided a personal email address when you registered, your UMass Lowell Student ID will be emailed to you at that address. Otherwise, a printed letter with your Student ID will be mailed to your home address.

Start Using Your EMail

Your UMass Lowell student email account is formatted like this: YourFirstName_YourLastName@student.uml.edu.

Your default student email password is UMS12345678, where the last eight digits are your UMass Lowell Student ID. If you have not yet received your UMass Lowell Student ID through your personal email account or by traditional mail, you can look up your UMass Lowell Student ID.

To start using your UMass Lowell student email account, you will need to visit http://mypassword.uml.edu and change your default email password by selecting “Change my Password.” When entering your default student email password, don't forget to use an Uppercase "U" and lowercase "ms" before your eight digit Student ID number. Once you have done this, access your UMass Lowell student email by entering your full UMass Lowell Student Email Account (including the @student.uml.edu) as your username and your student email password where it asks for password.

If you encounter problems or need additional assistance, contact the UMass Lowell Help Desk at 978-934-4357.

View Your SiS Student Record

Once you have your UMass Lowell Student Email Address and your Student Email Account Password, you will use these credentials to log into your SiS Student Records, enter your full Student Email Address (including the @student.uml.edu) as the “Campus User ID,” and your Student Email Account Password as the “Password.” Then select “Lowell” from the Campus drop down menu, and click on the “Login” button to proceed.

Using the SiS Student Self-Service Login, you will be able to register for future classes, search the course catalog, add, drop and swap courses, obtain class schedules, view and print grades, obtain unofficial transcripts, and more. Make sure to save your Student Email Address, Password and Student ID somewhere safe, as you will need them for future reference.
