Student Handbook 2017-2018

The University Handbook for Students serves as a means of communicating to the student the rights, responsibilities, and obligations of being a member of the University community; however, this is not to be regarded as a contract or offer to contract. While the handbook is a major source of information, it does not contain all policies and statements that a student needs to know. The Undergraduate Catalog, Graduate Catalog, Colonel’s Compass, and other relevant official University publications are incorporated by reference.
