The Success Program

Each year UCM invites a limited number of incoming freshmen students to apply for admission through the Success Program. This program is available in the fall semester for those students who do not meet the regular admission criteria, but who show academic promise. It is by invitation only.

Students who are invited into the program must complete two items in order to apply- Success Questions and the Learning Agreement. The Success Questions help us determine if you are a good fit for the program. The Learning Agreement outlines the conditions and expectations for this program. Once we receive both the Success Questions and the Learning Agreement, we will notify you as to whether you have been admitted. There are limited spots in this program and you are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.

Please note that students in the Success Program are required to attend the Success Workshop which will be held August 9-13, 2015.  More information about the Success Workshop is available in the FAQs. Be sure to read them before applying so you understand the requirements of this program.
