Official Rules for JUMP!

  1. For admission to JUMP, students must meet overall GPA requirements* of the college. GPA includes all transfer coursework.
  2. Only courses taken at UAH and listed on JUMP application are eligible.
  3. Students must receive a B in each JUMP course for it to count towards graduate degree.
  4. Students must maintain minimum overall GPA throughout JUMP program until graduation.
  5. All coursework must be completed within six years of taking first JUMP class.
  6. Students are considered undergraduate students until all requirements for undergraduate degree are met.
  7. Students cannot hold a GTA, GRA, or graduate scholarship or fellowship until undergraduate degree is completed.
  8. If a change is made to initial JUMP application both a JUMP change form and a change to student's undergraduate Program of Study (POS) must be submitted for approval.
  9. If student's GPA upon graduation is less than the required minimum, the student does not receive admission to the graduate degree program automatically. Student must apply to the graduate school with admission test score and graduate application. Courses will be counted as if the student had been a non-degree seeking graduate student.
