I. Academic Program information

  • This is list of all educational programs offered at MAU and a description of each. Click on the link with the program name below for further information.
  • Transferability of Credits

    Students who attend Millennia Atlantic University and plan to transfer credits earned at MAU to another school should contact the institution to which the student seeks transfer before enrolling in order to determine if credits will be accepted. The granting of transfer credit is within the sole discretion of the receiving institution.

    It is the policy of this institution to accept transfer credits for up to 50% of the requirements for graduation from any program. To obtain a degree, however, there are a certain number of final credit hours that must be completed at Millennia Atlantic University depending on the degree sought. Please see the program information for the specific level of degree offering for further detail on this requirement. Students must submit official transcripts for work completed at another institution in order for the credit to be considered for transfer. The receipt of credit for courses is reserved for those students who have successfully completed courses at another institution that are comparable in content, quality and scope to those offered at the University. Undergraduate students seeking to transfer credits from an associate’s degree awarded at another institution towards one of the University’s bachelor degree programs must have completed a minimum of fifteen (15) semester credit hours or the equivalent in general education, with a minimum 2.00 CGPA. The University may, in its discretion, require that transfer credit be validated by testing demonstrating the skills and knowledge possessed by the student.

II. Student Achievement Information

  1. Graduation & Placement Rates Click Here

    MAU follows ACICS’s guidance in calculating its graduation rates. The information from ACICS on how this rate is defined, and how the percentages are reached can be found directly below:

    Definition of Graduation Rate

    Graduation Rate is defined by ACICS in terms of the number of students who have completed or graduated during a reporting year, divided by the number of completers and graduates plus the number of students who have withdrawn, and expressed as a percent.

    Definition of Placement

    ACICS applies the following Definition of Placement to outcomes reported by member institutions:
    Placed based upon job titles: Any graduate or completer of a program that was placed based upon job titles included in the list of job titles published by the institution for which the program prepares students. These job titles must be those published by the institution on its web site in compliance with USDOE Title IV regulations and must be identified in the Department’s CIP-to-SOC Crosswalk (Standard Occupational Classification, U.S. Department of Labor) with the Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) code of this program.

    OR

    Placed based upon the required use of skills: Any graduate or completer of a program that was placed based upon the required use of skills learned in the student’s program as a predominant component of the job. These skills must be those listed in the institution’s published program description and a majority of these skills must be documented in the employer’s job description as required or desired skills, duties or responsibilities.

    OR

    Placed based upon the benefit of the training: Any graduate or completer of a program that was placed based upon the benefit of the training received from the program in obtaining a new position or maintaining a current position, supporting promotion or improving job related skills. ACICS calculates placement rates as follows:

    (Placed by job title + Placed by skills + Placed by benefit of training)
    _______________________________________________________
    ((Completers + Graduates) - (Exemptions*))

    * Exemptions are: pregnancy, death or other health-related issues, continuing education, military service, visa restrictions, enrollment in English as a Second Language (ESL) program, and incarceration.

  2. Retention Rates Click Here 

    The Retention Rate is defined by ACICS in terms of the total student enrollment, minus those students who withdraw, divided by the total student enrollment and expressed as a percent.

  3. Gainful Employment Disclosures

    The U.S. Department of Education has determined that to be eligible for Title IV funding, an educational program at a postsecondary school must lead to a degree, such as an associate, bachelor’s, graduate, or professional degree, or prepare students for “gainful employment” in a “recognized occupation.” Aside from some narrow exceptions, programs offered by proprietary schools, such as MAU, are all considered “gainful employment programs.” Helpful information is gathered on gainful employment programs and published in accordance with the U.S. Department of Education’s guidelines. This information can be found on each of our programs by clicking on the link for the program, and clicking on the icon towards the bottom of the program’s page that says “click here to view GE disclosure.”

III. Financial Information

  1. Tuition and Fees

    The estimated total cost of tuition for undergraduate and graduate programs is based on an average course load of 12 credit hours for undergraduate students and 9 credit hours for graduate students per semester. Therefore, the total cost of tuition is dependent on the total semester hours completed each semester. Click here to access information on MAU’s Tuition and Fees.

  2. Net Price Calculator

    The U.S. Department of Education developed a “net price calculator” to help current and prospective students, families, and other consumers estimate the individual net price of an institution of higher education for a student. The calculator enables current and prospective students, families, and consumers to determine an estimate of a current or prospective student’s individual net price at a particular institution. Click here to access MAU’s Net Price Calculator.

  3. Cost of Attendance

    An institution’s cost of attendance (COA) is the total direct and indirect costs of a year of college. The cost of attendance may also be called the student budget or the sticker price. Direct costs are costs that are paid directly to the college, such as tuition and fees. Click here to access MAU's Cost of Atendance

  4. Financial Aid

    Financial aid is available for those who qualify. Click here for additional information. For any other inquiries on available options and how to apply, please contact our Financial Aid Manager (786) 331-1000, ext. 202, or via email at finaid@maufl.edu .

  5. Repaying Student Loans

    In the case of loans, including federal financial aid loans, keep in mind that whatever amount you borrow must be paid back with interest. While loans are a good investment in your future, taking out a student loan is a serious obligation. All loans have a six (6) month grace period before you have to begin repayment. You are only entitled to ONE grace period after you graduate, leave school, or drop below half time, so it is important to remember that the loans must be repaid; and that all changes of address, schools and any financial status must be reposted to your loan servicer.

    Your loan servicer will provide information about repayment and will notify you of the date loan repayment begin. It is very important that you make your arranged loan payment on time every month following your repayment schedule. If you don't, you could end up in default, which has very serious consequences. Student loans are real loans— like car loans or mortgages. You have to pay back your student loans.

    In order to keep up to date on your loan information, the U.S. Department of Education's National Student Loan Data Systems’ (NSLDSSM) provides information on your federal loans including loan types, disbursed amounts, outstanding principal and interest, and the total amount of all your loans. To access the NSLDS website, please use the link provided in the MAU’s website under the Financial Services tab or go to www.nslds.ed.gov. If you are not sure who your loan servicer is, you can look it up on www.nslds.ed.gov or call the Federal Student Aid Information Center at 1-800-4-FED-AID (1-800-433-3243; TTY 1-800-730-8913).

    You have a choice of several repayment plans that are designed to meet different needs. The amount you pay and the length of time to repay your loans will vary depending on the repayment plan you choose. If you find yourself having difficulties making the payments on your loans, contact your loan servicer as soon as possible. Your servicer will work with you to determine the best option for you. Options include: changing repayment plans, requesting a forbearance (if you meet certain requirements, a forbearance allows you to temporarily stop making payments on your loan). If you don't meet the eligibility requirements for a deferment but are temporarily unable to make your loan payments, then (in very limited circumstances) a forbearance allows you to temporarily stop making payments on your loan, however the interest assigned to your loan will continue to accrue in a monthly basis.

    If you stop making payments and do not obtain a deferment or forbearance, your loan could go into default, which has serious negative consequences. If you default, it means you failed to make payments on your student loan according to the terms of your promissory note, which is a binding legal document you sign at the time you take out your loan. In other words, you have failed to make your loan payments as scheduled. The University, the financial institution that made or owns your loan, your loan guarantor, and the federal government all can take action to recover the money you owe. Here are some consequences of default:

    • National credit bureaus will be notified of your default, which will harm your credit rating, making it hard to buy a car, a house or apply for credit cards.
    • You will be ineligible for additional federal student aid if you decide to return to school.
    • State and federal income tax refunds will be withheld and applied toward the amount you owe.
    • You will have to pay late fees and collection fees on top of what you already owe .

V. Other Important Information and Disclosures

  1. Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act

    The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords eligible students certain rights with respect to their education records. (An “eligible student” under FERPA is a student who is 18 years of age or older or who attends a postsecondary institution.) These rights include:
    1. The right to inspect and review the student's education records within 45 days after the day the Millennia Atlantic University receives a request for access. A student should submit to the registrar a written request that identifies the record(s) the student wishes to inspect. The registrar will make arrangements for access and notify the student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. If the records are not maintained by the registrar, the registrar will advise the student of the correct University official to whom the request should be addressed.

    2. The right to request an amendment of the student’s education records that the student believes is inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise in violation of the student’s privacy rights under FERPA.

      A student who wishes to ask the school to amend a record should write the University staff person responsible for the record, clearly identify the part of the record the student wants changed, and specify why it should be changed.

      If the University decides not to amend the record as requested, the student will be notified in writing of the decision and the student’s right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the student when notified of the right to a hearing.

A school official also may include a volunteer or contractor outside of MAU who performs an institutional service of function for which the school would otherwise use its own employees and who is under the direct control of the school with respect to the use and maintenance of PII from education records, such as an attorney, auditor, or collection agent or a student volunteering to assist another school official in performing his or her tasks. A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibilities for MAU.

      Upon request, the University also discloses education records without consent to officials of another school in which a student seeks or intends to enroll, and will forward these records upon request.

      The University may also disclose directory information without prior consent, unless specifically requested otherwise. The University will designate the following information as directory information: student’s name, major field of study, dates of attendance (referring to the period of time a student is enrolled as opposed to specific daily records of attendance), and degrees and awards received. The University may disclose any of these items without prior written consent, unless notified in writing to the contrary by the end of a student’s first month in school.
