It is the student's responsibility to read and understand academic policies and procedures as set forth in the College Calendar, student and degree handbooks and other information documents. Responsibility for course selection to fulfill program and degree requirements remains at all times with the student. Program Directors, the Registrar, the Student Services Assistant, faculty and officers of the College will provide all reasonable assistance without assuming or reducing a student's responsibility for progress in his or her program. Students must ensure that they receive and retain written notice of acceptance into all programs, transfer credits, advanced standing, approval for leaves of absence, waiver of requirements and approval to graduate. Verbal representation by any staff, faculty or officer of the college does not take the place of appropriate written notice.
