Online & On-Campus Transfer Registration Days

Online Transfer Registration Option:

If an on-campus day does not fit your schedule, you can receive all of the critical information you need to start the semester through our Online Transfer Advising & Registration process. This still allows you to connect with your advisor, via email, phone or in person, early so that you can select the courses you need. It also provides you with the important steps to successfully enroll in classes, get your ID card, learn about parking and more before you start your semester here at UMass Lowell

Register now for the Online Transfer Registration Process!

On-Campus Transfer Registration Days: 8:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.

Note: You must register for a session two business days in advance. Registrations received after that time will not be processed for that session.
