FALL 2020 REGISTRATION Schedule

Enrollment Appointments for summer and fall 2020 have been changed by the UMass Registrar to give you more time to plan.

Check SPIRE for your Enrollment Appointment date and time. Remember, your "enrollment appointment" refers to the date and time you can sign up for classes in SPIRE. You are responsible for meeting with your advisor before this date.
