All University of Miami graduate students must maintain at least a 3.0 cumulative GPA to receive financial assistance. Failure to do so can result in the cancellation of aid awarded.

Semester Review (Graduate Students)

Federal Aid Semester Review
  • In compliance with federal financial aid regulations, the University of Miami requires satisfactory progress towards a degree as an eligibility requirement for federal financial assistance.
  • This policy is applicable to all undergraduate, graduate and doctoral students receiving financial aid through federal aid sources, including the Federal Direct PLUS Loan.
  • At the end of each semester, the Office of Financial Assistance Services reviews the academic progress of all University of Miami financial aid recipients.
  • If it is determined that a student is not making satisfactory academic progress at the end of the semester, a notification is sent to the student. The student will be placed on financial aid warning for one semester. Aid will not be withdrawn for the subsequent term, but at the end of that term, the student’s academic record will be reviewed by OFAS and appropriate renewal or termination actions will be taken. Notification will be sent to the student detailing information on the appeal process.

    For more information on the Appeals process, see our How to Appeal for Reinstatement of Aid information.
