The definitive source for University policies and procedures is your Undergraduate Bulletin. In addition, Scholarships & Student Aid, Student Accounts & University Receivables, Undergraduate Admissions, Undergraduate Curricula, and the University Registrar are superb offices which provide helpful and detailed policy and procedure information.
