2013 - 2014 Academic Catalog

This catalog is in effect for the period of Fall Quarter 2013 through Summer Quarter 2014. It may be updated throughout that period in a variety of ways, including (but not limited to) the following:

  • Announcement of the impending closure of a program
  • New programs
  • Academic policies (changes, additions, and deletions)
  • Course Listings and Course descriptions (changes, additions, and deletions)
  • Student Services (new information or clarification)
  • Faculty listings (additions, departures, changes in rank and title, etc.)
  • Administrative listings (additions, departures, changes in rank and title, etc.)
  • Contact Information
  • Community Standards

Changes in curriculum and in academic and admission policies will not be made within a catalog year unless the change is clearly to the benefit of those to whom it would apply, is optional (but beneficial to some), or can be accommodated without serious difficulty within the normal span allowed for a degree. Significant changes in curriculum or academic or admission policies will normally begin with a new academic year and a new catalog. Depending on the nature of the change, changes in academic policies may be applied to all students, regardless of the catalog under which they entered. However, changes in curriculum apply only to students who first enroll in a program during the academic year in which a change in curriculum becomes effective, or students who transfer into such a program during that year.
