Academic Policies - Undergraduate

Academic policies define what the institution expects from the students and what students may expect from the institution in terms of academic behavior. Undergraduate academic polices are developed and approved through the university's governance system by the Committee on Academic Policies and Standards (CAPS). CAPS membership includes representation from both faculty and students. The appeal of any academic policy listed below must begin with the college dean's office. An appeal decision by CAPS is final.

Below is a guide to help navigate through the undergraduate academic policies.
