The Bulletin of the Medical University of South Carolina


The Bulletin of the Medical University of South Carolina is the document of authority for all students. The information in this 2019-2020 Bulletin is accurate and current to the best knowledge available as of June 2019. Provisions contained herein may be amended, altered, or changed without prior notice when mandates from the South Carolina legislature or when conditions otherwise beyond the control of the University necessitate revision. Changes to university-wide academic policies are viewed and approved by the Education Advisory Committee and the Provost Council.  At the Provost’s discretion, substantive changes are also submitted to the Board of Trustees for approval. 

Therefore, information contained herein should not be considered to remain valid throughout an entire program of study; it may be necessary for the University to alter program requirements before the start of any enrollment period. The Bulletin should not therefore be relied upon as a contract but is intended solely as a guide for the student and is subject to change with the needs of the University. The most recent information contained in this bulletin is considered to have authority over information contained in other publications within the University when discrepancies occur. Documentation of changes are maintained by the Office of Enrollment Management (OEM).

Academic integrity relies upon an atmosphere among faculty, students, and administrative staff characterized by faithful adherence to standards which are conducive to the learning process. Policies and procedures are established and maintained to ensure that these standards are supported. Violation of these standards may result in sanctions against the student with appropriate entries placed on the student’s academic record.

The Medical University of South Carolina does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, sex, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran status, or marital status in the administration of admission policies, educational policies, financial aid, or any other university activity.
