UPP is equivalent to the first year of a UMass Dartmouth bachelor’s degree program, and when you successfully complete this stage, you can move directly into the second year of your undergraduate degree. We also provide a Pre-Master’s Program which prepares you for your master’s degree program in Business or Engineering.
