Fall 2020: Incoming First-year Student Registration

UMass Dartmouth enrolls all first-year students into their fall classes. Please make sure to complete your placement test(s) as soon as possible. This will allow us to create your fall schedule. Questions about placement testing can be directed to
At this time, UMassD summer orientation sessions for new first-year students will be conducted primarily through virtual sessions, rather than during our typical overnight programs in June. The University is currently finalizing a robust orientation program for our newest Corsairs which includes academic advising. Details will be sent to all new students as soon as they are confirmed.


The Advising, Support and Planning Office will deliver advising services to students reporting to ASAP via online until further notice.

The academic advisor will call, email, or video chat using ZOOM (depending on your choice of communication) at the time of the virtual appointment. Advisors will have the ability to lift your academic advising hold remotely, thus allowing registration for Fall courses on the appointed registration date (provided there are no additional registration holds).

The Advising, Support & Planning (ASAP) Office, located on the first floor of the Foster Administration Building (Room 122), is open year-round. It offers academic advice and referral to students from all majors. The office is staffed by full-time advisors, faculty members, and peers who encourage you to stop by for assistance.

The ASAP office serves as the advisor for all Arts & Sciences Undeclared majors, Liberal Arts majors (up to 45 credits), as well as students in transition.

We believe students adjust better to academic life and make better academic and career decisions through regular conferences with their advisors. If you do not have a designated faculty advisor, come to us. We will direct you to the department that has the right advisor for you.

Each college has an academic advising network for its students and this campus-wide office serves students in transition. In general, students who have declared a major will be assigned an advisor within that major.

Students should consult with their advisors about course scheduling, registration procedures, grading practices, and other academic problems and concerns.
