Who can take UMassOnline courses?

UMassOnline is ideal for working professionals, military personnel, stay-at-home parents, people with disabilities, human resources managers looking for new opportunities for employees, and, of course, UMass alumni. Any person with a high school diploma or its equivalent (GED) may register for noncredit, undergraduate, or graduate courses. However, you must have a bachelor's degree to be admitted to a graduate degree program. Some courses may require prerequisite college-level work. You may enroll in courses before being formally admitted to a degree program. Enrollment does not imply acceptance into a degree program. Massachusetts residency is not a requirement.
