Satisfactory Academic Progress

UMB students who wish to be considered for financial aid must maintain satisfactory progress in their selected course of study as set forth in this policy. Students are evaluated on the basis of grade point average (G.P.A.), credit hour completion, and maximum time frame limitation.
