Academic Support Services and Undergraduate Studies

Start on Track, Stay on Track

Your academic success is our top priority. In just a couple of years, more than 60% of all new jobs will require some college education.

To earn your college degree from UMass Boston, you’ll need at least 120 credits to graduate.

  • To graduate in four years, you must take approximately 30 credits per year or 5 courses per semester.
  • Taking fewer than five courses per semester means it will take you longer to graduate.

The important thing is that you reach your goal.

To help keep you on track, Academic Support Services and Undergraduate Studies offers you academic support through a variety of offices.
