Academic Policies Unique to Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate Academic Advisement

Each College student is assigned an adviser to help with course scheduling, career planning, and personal concerns. College faculty members are assigned as academic advisers by the Registrar and cannot be changed except in rare circumstances and when approved by the Dean of the College. Freshman and Sophomore students are required to meet with their academic advisor each semester and must obtain approval from their advisor on all items submitted to the Registrar (including semester registration, add/drop requests, degree change requests, etc.). Junior and Senior students are encouraged to meet with their advisers when making academic decisions but are not required to do so. While academic advisors provide guidance and should be aware of all current academic policies, each student is responsible to be aware of and abide by current policies, procedures, and deadlines, and is responsible for his/her academic decisions.

Master’s Program Interaction

College students who have completed 114 hours or more toward the B.A. graduation requirements can be considered for conditional admission into the Seminary (Graduate Credit-Only status). This allows students to begin some Seminary work (up to 30 credit hours) as they concurrently complete their remaining B.A. requirements. Upon completion of their B.A., students must reapply through the Admissions Office in order to be fully admitted into a master’s degree. Master’s courses generally are not transferable into the degree requirements of the College programs.
