Students are admitted through the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and the matriculation process is performed by the Registrar’s Office. Walk-In Registration for new students is conducted the months of July and August.
All students registering for courses at the University of Massachusetts Medical School must be positively identified. In order to establish positive identification, students must present a government issued picture ID and verification of social security number (i.e. social security card, W-2, etc.).
The University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS) requires all students admitted to the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences to complete the Student Health Clearance process prior to matriculation. This policy was developed to decrease risk of transmission of potential infectious agents, and it is part of each student’s professional responsibility to maintain this clearance throughout his/her educational experience at UMMS. Student Health Services (SHS) is responsible for tracking this clearance process for all students and notifying students who need updated clearance information.
Any student who fails to comply with SHS requests to complete the clearance process by the first day of class will be reported to the Dean of the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and the Registrar’s Office for further action including suspension of registration which would result in being withheld from all classes and laboratory work.
Forms that must be completed can be downloaded from the Student Health Services (SHS) website at http://umassmed.edu/studenthealth/. For additional information, please call (508) 334-8464.
