Policies and Guidelines

Bulletin

Although the review and approval process for the academic and student policies and guidelines listed below varies, new policies and revisions are made active at the beginning of a term rather than in the middle of a term.  Emergency exceptions, clarifications, and corrections may be put in place at any time during the year, with students made aware immediately, via email, of such changes.
