About the Catalog

The University provides information pertaining to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (the “Buckley Amendment”) in the annual student publication, Student Rights, Rules, and Responsibilities. Information is also available from the office of the Senior Vice Provost for Student Life and Dean of Students. The annual student publication, Student Rights, Rules, and Responsibilities, also contains University regulations and policies regarding student conduct.

The University will supply information about the employment of its graduates who have graduated from our degree and/or certificate programs. This information may be obtained upon request from the University’s office of Career and Professional Success and is available by university, college, or school to current and prospective students. Information on employment outcomes depends on student self-reporting. The University does not guarantee employment to its graduates. Chances for employment are enhanced if students have begun career planning early in their degree programs.

Program descriptions may vary from the actual content or requirements because of advancements in the discipline or the active nature of academic planning and decision making. Accordingly, the University reserves the right to make whatever changes are deemed necessary in schedules, course content, requirements, academic programs (including their termination), calendar, tuition and fees, services, or any other aspect of the University’s operations, giving whatever notice thereof is reasonable under the circumstances. Therefore, the provisions of this catalog are not an irrevocable contract between the students and the University. The University is also not responsible for failure to provide or for delay in providing expected services and/or facilities when such failure arises from causes beyond the reasonable control of the University.
