Additional Residency Requirements Information

  • Attendance at a MA university or college does not, by itself, establish MA residency for the purposes of application to UMMS.
  • Applicants who are foreign nationals must possess a Resident Alien Registration Card ("Green Card") at the time of application to be considered for UMMS admission in addition to satisfying the criteria established for MA residency.
  • MA residents currently attending a college, university or other school in another state or in the military service may still qualify for classification as a MA resident applicant if they meet other established criteria (graduated from a MA high school while a resident of MA for example).

Submission of documentation does not guarantee residency criteria will have been met by the applicant. Decisions are made on a case-by-case basis, depending on the information provided. Applicants will be notified of the admissions committee decision.
