The Division of Online & Continuing Education offers courses during the Fall, Spring and Summer semesters.
Approximately two months prior to the start of each semester, we post the upcoming semester course schedule on our website. Once you know which course(s) you would like to take, current students can register using SIS Self-Service

Non-Degree Registration Form
You may take courses without being officially enrolled in a certificate or degree program, but you must meet the particular course prerequisites. Registrations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Class size is limited. We recommend that you register early to reserve your place in class.

undergraduate certificate program requirements. The course should be equivalent to UMass Lowell

grade equivalent to a C- (1.70 on a 4.00 scale) or better.
Program Coordinators and Faculty and Student Support Specialists are available by appointment to help

of courses. For online advising, email us at Continuing_Education@uml.edu.
