Undergraduate Students: Undeclared and Declared
All undergraduate students are associated with a collegiate level advising unit that coincides with their academic major status. These units house advising centers where students can go for advising activities related to their major as well as for tasks that require the assistance of the academic dean.
Declared students are welcome to avail themselves of the wealth of information on the Undergraduate Advising website as well as from our various units.
We encourage all undergraduate students to subscribe to the Advising Blog, either via email, RSS feed or Twitter. The Blog provides a steady stream (during the academic year) of pertinent advice, deadlines, and events/activities related to academic programs for undergraduates at UMass Amherst.
Questions related to general advising - especially related to majors exploration, registration, SPIRE, and General Education requirements? Check out these options:
