First-time students: You’ll receive information about your UMail (UMass e-mail) and student information system (SPIRE) accounts within a few days of registration. This information will be sent to the e-mail address you provided at registration in two separate emails. You’ll need to activate your UMail account using the NetID and temporary password provided in these emails. Your student number (SPIRE ID) will also be included in the emails. All future communication about your class will be sent to your UMail account. Failure to activate your UMail account will result in a hold being put on your record. This hold will prevent future enrollments in all UMass Amherst classes.
To avoid accidentally blocking messages about your registration: Be sure to add
to your UMail address book.
Please use your UMail account for all communication with the university, as we will not be able to send to any other email address, even if it is on your registration form.
