Academic Calendar

MyWay at UMHB follows a continuous enrollment model.  Students may start a term on the 15th of each month.  A term is six months in length.  An academic year for a student extends for twelve months from the student’s date of enrollment.  (For example, the first term for a student starting MyWay at UMHB on August 15th would begin August 15th and would end February 14th.  The student’s second term would begin February 15th and would end August 14th.  The academic year for that student, therefore, would be designated as starting on August 15th and ending on August 14th.)

Throughout each term, students may work on competencies, including accessing resources and completing assessments, around the clock.  Students’ work on competencies is not limited by the University’s office hours nor holiday schedule.  The learning management system used by MyWay at UMHB is available to students 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.  Students' access to the learning management system, however, is limited to the start and end dates of each term in which they are enrolled.

Posting of courses/competencies, grades/ratings, and degree conferrals to students’ transcripts will follow the schedule published by the Office of the Registrar at  While degrees may be conferred according to the published schedule, the University holds two commencement ceremonies per year—one in May and one in December.  Students with degree conferral dates in January through June are invited to participate in the May ceremony.  Students with degree conferral dates in July through December are invited to participate in the December ceremony.
