Spring 2023 Enrollment Holds

To help ensure a timely graduation, all BMB majors are required to meet with an advisor before they register for classes. The enrollment hold can be lifted by meeting with a BMB Peer Advisor during their office hours, or by scheduling an appointment with a BMB Academic Advisor.

Note: Holds will not be taken off immediately after your advising meeting, but will be lifted in time for your individual enrollment appointment. Please remember to tell your advisor when your enrollment appointment begins!

NEW Travel Award for BMB Undergraduates

The Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB) department has a travel award available for undergraduates who are looking for financial assistance to attend a conference, meeting, workshop, etc. Students should complete an application, which is reviewed by BMB Academic Affairs Committee, and distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. If funds are available, BMB will cover up to $500 in travel expenses with the expectation that a student's PI or other funding sources will match the amount that BMB contributes. Preference is given to students who present talks or posters at meetings.

Students working in a BMB lab should ask their PI for more information about how to apply for a travel award. Students working in labs outside of BMB should contact Amy Springer at chiefadvisor@biochem.umass.edu to access the application.
