What Students Are Saying

4.12 Average Rating
The academic rigor of The University of Massachusetts Amherst is directly correlated with each student's major. Generally, for each class there is one final grade calculated from three term exams, homework and a final exam, so keeping up with readings and attending class lectures is imperative. If you find something difficult, there are plenty of outside resources to ensure academic success (tutors, office hours with the professors, teacher assistants, supplementary instructor sessions and review sessions).
Ashley from West Yarmouth, MA
This place will not crush you and, to be honest, once you get there, there is an immediate sensation that your professors are pulling for your success as much as you are. There is work, but you need it. This institution gives people the tools to become whatever they want to be, but it is up to the individual himself/herself to make use of those tools.
Stephani from Mendon, MA
You get out what you put in.
