For All Programs:

A limited number of students may be admitted on probationary admission by consent of the Admissions Committee. An interview may be required.

Students admitted on probationary admission will need to successfully master all competencies in which they are registered within their first 6-month term of enrollment. If all competencies are successfully mastered, a student's probationary admission status will be removed. If a student does not successfully master all competencies within the first 6-month term, the student would not be eligible to register for the next term. 

Individuals who are denied admission on the basis of the criteria listed above may appeal to the Admissions Office.  The appeal must be made in writing and must specify the admission requirement(s) to be reviewed.  Any supporting evidence not originally submitted with admissions materials should be included.  Please contact the Admissions Office for further information.

 

To be considered for admission to MyWay at UMHB, prospective students must submit:

  • an application for admission with the non-refundable application fee.
  • an official transcript for each college/university previously attended (sent directly from the institution to UMHB).  Even though courses taken at one institution are noted on another college's transcript, applicants must submit transcripts from the institution at which the courses were taken.  Transcripts from other institutions which have been submitted for admission or evaluation become part of the student's academic file and are not returned or copied for distribution.
