The Handbook is based on the most current information available at the time of publication; however, policies, regulations and procedures are subject to change. Whenever possible, students will receive notification of changes either through an e-mail or at the registration period following the change. Once changes in policies, regulations or procedures are published, students are governed by them rather than by the ones that might have been in effect when they originally matriculated at the College. Therefore, students are advised to verify that the information in the Handbook is current by contacting the appropriate College office. The Handbook is not a contractual or legal statement.The Dean of Students oversees the preparation of the Student Handbook, which is edited by the staff in Student Services.
