Academic Policies and Procedures

The policies and procedures presented in this Catalog are provided for the convenience of students, faculty, and staff. All students are responsible for knowing the policies of the University and are responsible for familiarizing themselves with and noting changes in policy or procedures affecting his or her program and adjusting the program accordingly. Students are encouraged to seek the most current information about university policies from the appropriate offices.  Final responsibility for enrolling in appropriate courses in the right sequence and for meeting all degree requirements rests with the student.

For educational and financial reasons, the University reserves the right to change, at any time, any of the provisions, statements, policies, curricula, procedures, fees, or dates found in this Catalog.  Statements in the Catalog do not constitute an actual or implied contract between the student and the University.

The Student Handbook, issued by the Office of Student Affairs, covers non-academic policies. The remainder of this section of the Catalog provides information on a number of important academic policies and procedures applying to all undergraduate students.
