Academic Policies

Degree requirements are the purview of the faculty.  The awarding of degrees is based on requirements created and approved by them.  In addition to degree requirements, the faculty have also established academic policies and regulations to preserve the academic integrity of the institution.  

Students are required to know, understand, and comply with the regulations as outlined in this Catalog.

A student who believes they have extenuating circumstances which warrant consideration for relief from an academic policy should contact the Registrar’s Office for directions regarding the appeal process.   Appeals will be reviewed and decided by the Academic Standards Committee.  The Committee is solely responsible for those decisions and their decision is final.
