All Undergraduates

Fall 2019: First-year students are invited to submit a housing reservation fee. Submission of a housing reservation fee does not guarantee a room assignment.


All Undergraduates - To secure your spot at UMass Boston, you must submit your $200 New Student Deposit. This deposit will be applied to your first semester bill.

Freshmen and Traditional Nursing Students - It is recommended that you submit the deposit as soon as possible. The deposit deadlines are:

  • May 1 (summer or fall semester)
  • December 1 (spring semester) 

The deposit is refundable by written request to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions only prior to these deadlines.

Transfer Students - Your deposit is due within 30 days of receiving your acceptance letter. If this occurs after May 1, your deposit is non-refundable.

Directions for Student Potential (DSP) students - You are exempt from the deposit. Please confirm your intention to enroll in the DSP program and sign up for assessment and orientation.
