Each student should become familiar with policies, regulations, and instructions as stated in this catalog. Counselors, advisers, and other personnel are willing to assist students in planning programs of study and to aid them in other phases of college life. HOWEVER, THE FINAL RESPONSIBILITY FOR MEETING REQUIREMENTS FOR GRADUATION AND ADHERING TO OTHER ACADEMIC REGULATIONS RESTS WITH THE STUDENT.
