SA Groups How-To

Every student organization at UMass Boston, including the GSA, has a page at the UMass Boston Student Activities Groups website (  Students can visit SA Groups to fill out on-line applications for various types of GSA funding.

The GSA page on the SA Groups site can be accessed by visiting the SA Groups main page and clicking on the “Log In” button.  Enter your UMass Boston email username (not including and password to log in.

Once you have logged in, click on “Organizations” and search for the Graduate Student Assembly.  From the GSA page, click on “Join Organization.”  Once you are approved, you can click on “Forms” to access the PDG, research funding, master’s thesis, doctoral thesis, or event funding proposal applications.  Please note that if you don’t see a link to a funding proposal form on the “Forms” page it is because we are not accepting applications at this time.  For example, master’s thesis and doctoral dissertation grant applications are only available at certain times each semester.

If you have trouble logging in to SA Groups, click on the “Help” button on the login page, and then click on the “Next” button in the popup window that appears.  You will be directed to a form that you can fill out and submit to the SA Groups help staff.  They are responsive and will generally answer your question(s) within 1-2 business days.  If you still need help logging in after communicating with the SA Groups help staff, contact
