Financial Aid



Introduction to Financial Aid

University of Mobile provides a program of financial aid intended to assist students whose families cannot pay the total cost of education and to assist students who have talents, qualities, or proficiencies that would be an asset to University of Mobile community. Students who have such needs or abilities may apply for financial aid through the financial aid office. Each program has separate criteria for qualifying.

Financial aid available at University of Mobile includes grants, scholarships, loans, and work opportunities. The sources of these aid funds include the University, the Alabama Baptist State Convention, the State of Alabama, the United States government, and private individuals, agencies, and corporations. To apply for financial aid, a student must complete all the necessary applications required by the program for which he or she wishes to apply.  Applications for aid are for one academic year only. To receive financial aid for additional years, a student must complete new applications every year and meet the criteria of the programs. Students generally cannot receive more than one scholarship or grant that is funded with University of Mobile funds. University of Mobile funds generally require students to have and maintain a 2.00 GPA; some programs have higher requirements. Additional information about financial aid can be obtained from the financial aid office.

Students should contact the financial aid office prior to dropping classes to determine the effect on financial aid eligibility. Unless otherwise noted, financial aid is for full-time (12 hours or more) students. A reduction in hours may result in an adjustment to the aid package. Students must be enrolled in at least six-semester hours of regular undergraduate coursework to receive Federal Stafford loans.

Institutional financial aid and some funded/endowed scholarships are ideally granted for a four-year academic program. Students receiving equivalent to half tuition or more per year in institutional aid must live on-campus. See annual University Student Handbook (in the Student Handbooks  section of catalog) for on-campus housing requirements. A four-year academic program begins the freshman year and totals eight Fall/Spring academic periods (semesters). Transfer students can receive aid for four Fall/Spring academic periods (semesters).

Application Process for Financial Aid

To apply for financial aid, a student must complete all the necessary applications required by the program for which he or she wishes to apply. The applications for financial aid must be completed for each academic year. A regular student’s classification is determined by the number of semester hours earned: freshmen-up to 29 semester hours; sophomores-30 to 59 semester hours; juniors-60 to 89 semester hours; and seniors-90 or more semester hours.

The procedure for applying for financial aid includes the following.

  1. New students to University of Mobile must complete and submit the University of Mobile Admissions/Financial Aid application;
  2. All student applicants are subject to the University’s satisfactory academic progress criteria;
  3. All students are to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If a student chooses not to complete the FAFSA, it is the student’s responsibility to notify the Office of Financial Aid;
  4. All students should complete other specific forms as applicable (i.e., the Alabama Student Grant application or the Alabama Baptist State Convention Scholarship application, Federal Direct Loan Master Promissory Note and entrance counseling, if eligible).

Applications for all aid programs at University of Mobile are available at the University’s enrollment services office, and on the University’s website at www.umobile.edu. Students desiring to apply for financial aid at University of Mobile should begin the application process six or more months prior to the expected date of enrollment (including federal paperwork).

Financial aid is awarded for one academic year or portion thereof, and re-application is required each subsequent year that aid is desired. Most funding agencies require that students meet and maintain the University’s standard of satisfactory academic progress to receive aid (see Satisfactory Academic Progress  below for more information). Some scholarships require recipients to have and maintain a higher academic standard.

 

Satisfactory Academic Progress for Financial Aid

All students, whether undergraduate, graduate, transfer, full-time, or part-time are required to make satisfactory academic progress. All programs of financial aid funded or controlled by federal or state agencies require that students make satisfactory academic progress to qualify for continued receipt of financial aid.

The University’s Academic Standards are the Qualitative Standards for this Process. In addition, federal law requires that students who have earned 64 or more academic hours (juniors and seniors) maintain the minimum cumulative GPA required by the University for graduation, which is 2.0 GPA. The following three components are evaluated each academic term to determine satisfactory academic progress:

Component: 1. A student has a maximum of six years consisting of 12 full-time equivalent academic periods (semesters) to complete a degree.
Component: 2. A student must demonstrate successful completion of the following number of hours at the end of each academic year: first year, 18 hours; second year, 36 hours; third year, 57 hours; fourth year, 79 hours; fifth year, 103 hours; sixth year, 128 hours.
Component: 3. All students receiving federal financial aid, institutional financial aid, academic merit scholarships or endowed scholarships must have and maintain a minimum University of Mobile grade point average of 2.0 or better in order to continue receiving financial aid. Eligibility for aid programs will be evaluated as part of the initial application process and again at the end of each academic period (semester).
  • Sanctions for not maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress:

Financial Aid Probation is granted for one academic period (semester) and the student is allowed to continue receiving financial aid. At the end of this academic period all components of satisfactory academic progress are evaluated.

Financial Aid Suspension is assigned when a student has received financial aid on probation and has again failed to meet any of the components of satisfactory academic progress.

  • Appeal Procedures
 

A student who has been placed on financial aid suspension may appeal by submitting the satisfactory academic progress appeals form which can be obtained from the Student Success Center. Appeals are reviewed by the Academic Affairs committee prior to the start of each academic period (semester). The committee is composed of faculty and staff. The following criteria are observed in the appeals process:

  1. Action is based on the policies and procedures of the university.
  2. Forms are reviewed and recommendations are made on the appeal of the student whose academic performance has resulted in financial aid suspension.
  3. Students are notified in writing of the committee’s decision.

Financial Aid for Students Entering the Graduate Program

All undergraduate prerequisites and deficiencies taken as graduate students must be completed with a “C” or better to qualify for financial aid. Students are expected to make progress toward the degree by making grades no lower than “B” on graduate courses to qualify for financial aid. Therefore, students may count only six graduate semester hours of work with grade “C” toward the degree. When the six-hour limit of grades of “C” or below is exceeded, the student will be dropped automatically from the program. Financial aid eligibility may also be affected. The student has the right to appeal the financial aid decision to the director of financial aid. If the student is readmitted to the program, he or she must repeat courses with a grade of “C” in excess of the six-hour limit and all courses in which a grade of “F” was received.

Undergraduate Student Leave of Absence Policy

The Undergraduate Student Leave of Absence (LOA) policy exists to encourage students to return and graduate after an absence of more than two consecutive semesters from UM. Circumstances that may be considered when applying include but are not limited to military training or duty, health or family issues, work related transfer. Eligible students are encouraged to take advantage of the benefits provided by a Leave of Absence, e.g., no need to apply for readmission and may participate in their regularly scheduled registration/enrollment period upon return to the University.

To apply for a Leave of Absence, a student must have maintained satisfactory academic progress and be financially clear in addition to meeting the following criteria:

  • Be a degree-seeking undergraduate student.
  • Must be registered in the current semester to apply for the Leave of Absence.
  • Do not intend to be absent for more than two consecutive semesters.
  • All holds which would restrict registration must be cleared prior to submitting LOA form. Holds include but are not limited to, required enrollment documents, disciplinary, financial, and residential life.

LOA applications are available at the Student Information Desk in Weaver Hall.
