Residency Requirement

All students in baccalaureate degree programs must earn a minimum of 20 credits in their major from UMF, and earn either their final 32 credits or 48 of their final 64 credits from UMF. This requirement may be waived under special circumstances by the provost or a designee of the provost. Courses taken from another institution as part of the National Student Exchange or approved study abroad programs are counted toward the residency requirement.

This policy applies to all transfer students, including those transferring from within the UMS.
