Admission Requirements and Entry Level Assessment

  • Admission requirements:
    • Degree seeking students are required to submit an application
    • Degree seeking students must submit an application fee of $30 which is non-refundable
    • The student must submit an official high school transcript and official transcripts from other colleges attended.
    • Students earning more than 24 semester hours of credit do not need to submit a high school transcript
    • A high school GPA of 2.0 or higher and an ACT score of 21 of higher are preferred for admission.

Conditional Admission
Students who do not meet the requirements for regular admission may still qualify for UMC’s Conditional Admission program. Students who wish to be considered for conditional admittance are encouraged to apply early as the Conditional admit program has a limited number of spaces available. Conditional Admission is designed to give entering students the best chance to succeed at college. In addition to the regular enrollment process, Conditionally Admitted students must:

  1. Register for a maximum of 13 credits their first semester.
  2. Be automatically registered in GNED 1000* Seminar for New Students and attain a final grade of at least a “C”.
  3. Meet with their academic advisor and complete the Academic Action Plan (AAP).
  4. Meet with staff of the Academic Success Center (ASC) for additional guidance and preparation.
  5. Return the completed AAP and all related paperwork to the Academic Success Center and the Office of the Registrar by the end of the first week of the semester.
  6. Beginning with the first week of classes and for the entire semester, spend a minimum of two hours per week in study at the Academic Success Center. This study time may be augmented or replaced by meeting with a tutor for two hours per week. Participation and attendance will be verified.

Failure to Complete Specific Requirements
#2. Students who do not meet this requirement will be required to re-register for the course their next semester of enrollment until successfully completed.

#3, #4, and #5. Failure to complete the AAP will result in a “hold” being placed on the student’s academic record. Students forfeit the right to register for next semester’s classes during their regularly scheduled queue time and are required to register during the “open” registration period after all other returning students have registered.

#5 and #6. Students academically suspended who did not complete these requirements shall not be eligible for the automatic re-admittance provision of the Academic Contract.

*Students with an ACT Composite score of 20 or less will be automatically
placed in GNED 1000.

  • Transfer Students
    • Complete the application form
    • Provide official copies of official college transcripts
    • Transcript evaluation is completed in the admissions office. Contact person is Sherry Just.

Mandatory Placement and Advising Placement Form

UMC requires ACT scores from all entering students with fewer than 24 semester credit hours. To facilitate student success, ACT scores are used to determine appropriate, mandatory placement in specific courses. Students may contact the instructor to arrange for a placement test if they believe the required course placement is not appropriate. Students must earn a “C-” or above in any mandatory class before registering for a higher-level class in that subject area.
