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. Each student is responsible for complying with all policies and procedures in the MUSC Bulletin, the relevant handbook for the program in which each student is enrolled, and any other relevant University policies. The University expects students to be familiar with all student policies and procedures; a claim of ignorance of any of the policies and procedures will not be accepted as an excuse for violating them. The University reserves the right to amend or supplement The Bulletin and student-related policies at any time upon such notice to students as it deems suitable.
Therefore, information contained in this 2019-2020 Bulletin should not be considered to remain valid throughout a student’s entire program of study. It may be necessary for the University to alter program requirements before any enrollment period. The Bulletin should not be relied upon as a contract. It is intended solely as a guide for the student and is subject to change with the needs of the University. If there are conflicts between The Bulletin and other documents or publications within the University, The Bulletin shall prevail. 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.
