Purpose of the Catalog

The purpose of this catalog is to provide information about the academic programs as well as the rules, policies, and guidelines of the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (UMHB). It includes information concerning admissions, academic offerings, academic regulations and requirements, tuition and fees, services available to students, university accreditation, and a list of the university’s faculty, staff, and administration. In the entirety of this catalog, the terms "University" or "UMHB" shall mean University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. The term "campus" shall mean UMHB owned, leased, or controlled buildings, land, parking lots, and walkways. This catalog is available online and may be viewed from any computer able to access UMHB's website -

Circumstances may change suddenly during the term. Government officials may direct the University to shift its classes to an online format or the University's administration may consider it necessary to move one or more classes to an online format as a matter of health and safety or for other reasons related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The University reserves the right to make these changes. A student who is required to isolate or quarantine may be required to move to online instruction even if classmates are able to continue with face-to-face instruction. 


The University charges the same tuition & fee rate structure for face-to-face and online classes. If a class moves to an online format, in most cases students will be required to continue the class online or make a timely withdrawal under the University's normal withdrawal policies. Be aware that some courses cannot be conducted in a wholly online format. Most labs and clinical rotations cannot be completed online. Such classes are subject to cancellation by the University if necessary for reasons of health and safety; to cancellation by a hospital or other clinical or laboratory affiliate; or to extended time frames if courses must be continued or Incompletes awarded until instruction can resume. The University cannot guarantee that students will complete coursework or graduate on any particular schedule.


Except as provided above, all withdrawals and refunds will be handled according to the University's normal policies described in this Catalog.


Due to changes in academic course design (i.e. CruFlex courses) in response to the pandemic, certain policies contained in this catalog such as class attendance may be temporarily amended.  Students will be notified of these changes primarily through UMHB student email and the university’s website, including:  https://go.umhb.edu/restart/student-notices#1845, https://go.umhb.edu/restart/academics#1845


The university will revise this catalog from time to time in order to provide students current and complete information. UMHB reserves the right to add, delete, or amend provisions at any time regarding requirements, deadlines, fees, curricula, courses, or other information.  Students are expected to remain familiar with the contents of the catalog.
