The University complies with federal guaranteed student loan regulations and will supply information about the employment of its graduates who have majored in specialized degree programs that normally lead to specific employment fields. This information may be obtained upon request from the University’s Career Services, which is available to all students. The University does not guarantee employment to its graduates, but their chances for employment are enhanced if they have begun career planning early in their undergraduate days.
The University provides information pertaining to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (the “Buckley Amendment”) in the annual student handbook. Information also is available from the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs and the Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs. The annual student publication, Student Rights, Rules, and Responsibilities, also contains University regulations and policies regarding student conduct.
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.
All aforementioned publications are available in alternate formats upon request.
