Exception to the above advising process:
UMass Amherst students who are certain they want to apply for Partner (non-UMass) programs in the following locations may bypass the initial advising and information sessions with peer and staff advisors and start the program application directly  from the program page on our website.  These students have the option to meet with peer and/or staff advisors at any time.  
      Barcelona, Spain
      Florence, Italy
      New Zealand

Students applying to a UMass short-term, faculty-led program may bypass the advising phase and apply directly to the program by clicking the “Apply Now” button on the program page.  See a list of these programs HERE.

Only students who are enrolled full-time in a US college or university may apply to a UMass program.  To determine if you are eligible to apply to a program, check the "Who Can Apply?" section of the Fact Sheet on the program page. 

International students who wish to study at UMass should visit Undergraduate Admissions or Graduate Admissions.
