List of Undergraduate Degree Programs Offered Through Online and Continuing Education

Application Deadline:

The Division of Online and Continuing Education has rolling admissions, which means you can apply whenever you would like. Each application is processed – and each applicant notified – as soon as all of your admissions materials have been received and reviewed.

Certificate Programs

Our short-term undergraduate certificate programs typically consist of six to eight courses and they get you one step closer to your degree, faster than you ever imagined possible! Many of the courses taken towards these certificate programs can also be counted towards your degree. In fact, many degree program students use them as benchmarks on the way to earning their degrees. Apply to an undergraduate certificate program using the Online Application Form or by printing and completing the Undergraduate Certificate Application Form in .pdf file format.

Student Readmission

Students who have previously applied into a program at UMass Lowell and have been inactive (haven't registered for courses) for a number of semesters will need to apply for readmission before they can register for courses...  Readmission form in .pdf file format.
