|First-time freshmen are eligible for University of Miami academic scholarships for up to eight semesters; transfer students are eligible for up to four semesters.|
|Ronald A. Hammond Scholarship recipients should refer to their contract for renewal criteria with the Office of Academic Enhancement.|
|Scholarship recipients must maintain a CGPA of at least 3.0 for all credits earned at the University of Miami to retain their scholarship.|
|All full-time undergraduate students are required to register for and complete at least 24 (a minimum of 12 each semester) new credit hours at the University of Miami each academic year, defined as the fall and spring semesters.|
|Full-time undergraduate students who enroll for only one semester are required to register for and complete at least 12 new credit hours during that semester.|
|Withdrawals, incompletes, audits, and Fs are attempted but not considered earned hours.|
|Reinstatement of aid eligibility can be obtained by earning additional University approved credits or appealing as outlined later in this section. The University reviews progress once a year at the end of the spring semester. A student who completes courses that meet the requirements prior to the spring semester review may request, in writing, a review of their progress in advance of the end of year review. Aid eligibility will be restored upon determination that the progress requirements have been met.|
First-year transfer students awarded an academic scholarship are guaranteed their scholarship if they have completed 24 credit hours during their first academic year, have maintained a minimum 3.0 CGPA and have registered as a full-time student for their second year of eligibility. Transfer students meeting these requirements will be guaranteed their scholarship for four semesters or until they graduate, whichever comes first.
Any University of Miami academic scholarship will be guaranteed for the remainder of an undergraduate student’s eligibility if they are not on probation at the end of their 4th semester (2nd semester for transfer students).
Automatic Probation and Scholarship Assistance
At the conclusion of each fall and spring semester during the academic year, the Standards of Academic Progress committee will review the eligibility of scholarship recipients. Those in violation of the satisfactory progress eligibility requirements will be notified in writing of their eligibility status and right of appeal.
|Freshmen (0-29 credits) new to the University will be allowed a one academic year adjustment period.|
|If a student receiving a University of Miami academic scholarship does not meet the renewal requirements at the end of their fourth semester of eligibility (second semester for transfer students), he/she will not receive their academic scholarship.|
|For those students who failed satisfactory progress and those whose appeals were denied, the University reviews progress at the end of each semester. Scholarship eligibility will be restored upon determination that the progress requirements have been met.|
A student may receive a scholarship probationary award only once. Therefore, any student who has received a scholarship probationary award must meet the standard of academic progress requirements for that scholarship assistance by the end of the probationary period in order to maintain his/her eligibility for that scholarship in the future.
