Our office assists UMass undergraduates with enrollment in courses at Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke, and Smith Colleges. Registration for a Five College course is easy, but it is different than registering for a UMass course.
Each semester there are TWO registration periods for Five College classes. You MUST adhere to the UMass Amherst Five College dates. You can find these dates listed on the Five College Online Academic Calendar.
Course Request Period (Pre-registration) - one week in November for Spring courses and in April for Fall courses.
Add/Drop - during the first two weeks of the semester.
Eligibility for Five College Interchange
UMass Amherst full and part-time students who meet the following criteria are eligible to enroll in Five College classes:
second semester freshman (or beyond) AND
in good academic standing AND
registered in at least one 3-credit UMass course (enroll in a UMass course at the beginning of your enrollment appointment).
