About this Catalog

The College Catalog is a document of record issued in September 2022. The Catalog contains current information regarding the College calendar, admissions, degree requirements, fees, regulations and course offerings. It is not intended to be, and should not be relied upon, as a statement of the College’s contractual undertakings.

The College reserves the right in its sole judgment to make changes of any nature in its program, calendar or academic schedule whenever it is deemed necessary or desirable, including changes in course content, the rescheduling of classes with or without extending the academic term, canceling of scheduled courses and other academic activities, and requiring or affording alternatives for scheduled courses or other academic activities, in any such case giving such notice thereof as is reasonably practicable under the circumstances.

Important Note Regarding Serious Health Conditions

The College is committed to creating a safe environment within its residential living, learning, and working environment. However, each community member should understand that there is a risk of contraction of COVID-19 or other serious health conditions on College property and by participating in its programs, events and activities. The College has and will continue to evaluate appropriate steps to mitigate risks in light of public health conditions, but the College cannot guarantee anyone’s safety or health while on campus or participating in College programs and activities.

Taking steps to minimize the risk of infections or any other spread of disease at the College is a shared responsibility. Consistent with the principle of men and women for others, every member of our community must do their part. By coming to campus or participating in any College program, event or activity, each community member acknowledges and agrees to comply with all applicable governmental orders and requirements, all national, state, and local health guidance, and all policies, requirements and instructions regarding COVID-19 or other serious health conditions. The College may update and change the policies, requirements and instructions from time to time in its sole discretion. These policies, requirements and conditions control over the language contained in any other pre-existing policy or statement of the College. Each community member coming to campus is responsible for checking the College’s website for updated information. Any failure to comply with governmental orders or guidance, or College policies, requirements and conditions or instructions of College officials may endanger others and, as a result, may result such person being required to leave campus and/or restricted from particular areas and subject to other disciplinary measures, up to possible dismissal from the College.

The College may make changes of any nature at any time and from time to time to its educational services and activities, working and living environment, offerings, events, services, activities, calendar, schedule, standards, policies, requirements, rules, and procedures whenever the College deems it necessary or desirable in connection with the on-going COVID-19 pandemic or other epidemic or outbreak, as determined by the College in its sole discretion. This includes, but is not limited to, changes to modes or methods of delivery, modifying, suspending, cancelling or rescheduling any or all activities, services, and events, whether on or off campus, and requiring compliance with new, additional, or modified community standards, policies, procedures or rules intended for the protection of health and safety, in any such case giving such notice thereof as is reasonably practicable under the circumstances.
