Will my military credits transfer?
UMass Amherst applies the same standards to credits for military education as those applied to coursework from accredited colleges and universities. The AARTS military transcript is available in electronic format only and may be requested via the Army/American Council on Education Registry Transcript System (AARTS) website.
Can I get a transcript review to see if I am a good fit and which classes might transfer?
Yes! Our Advising Center offers a preliminary review of your application before you apply. Our advisors will evaluate your unofficial transcripts to help you decide if Isenberg is the right fit for you. Advisors will also tell you which courses will most likely transfer, and what requirements you still need to fulfill. The preliminary transcript review does not guarantee admission, but is a good indication of your standing.
To request a preliminary review, email your unofficial transcript(s) and a very brief description of your work experience, including military experience.
Am I eligible for tuition remission?
Full-time state employees, their spouses and unmarried dependent children (through age 25) who meet eligibility and admission requirements will receive 50% tuition remission for online courses.
