 Financial Aid Information

  • Students can attend UMO programs as part time, 3/4 time or full time, depending on the best choice for their lifestyle and work schedule.

  • Financial aid benefits including state and federal grants, as well as student loans, are available contingent on eligibility.

  • A student can apply for financial aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Once the FAFSA is processed, Financial Aid will develop a customized financial aid package showing what federal funds are available and what out-of-pocket expenses will be needed.

Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Information:
Every college has a satisfactory academic progress policy, and students failing to meet the minimum SAP requirement will not be able to retain their federal, state and institutional aid. Our SAP policy has two components and the students are required to meet or exceed both of them: Grade Point Average (GPA) and PACE – the rate at which a student is progressing towards a degree.
