Undergraduate Bulletin and Student Handbook 2019-2020

The purpose of the Columbia College Bulletin is to provide a general description of Columbia College and its various academic units and to provide detailed information regarding the undergraduate curricula. Inasmuch as the educational process necessitates change, the information and educational requirements in this Bulletin represent a flexible program that may be altered where such alterations are thought to be in the mutual interests of the College and its students. The provisions of the Bulletin do not constitute any offer of a contract that may be accepted by students through registration and enrollment in the College. The College reserves the right to change, without notice, any fee, provision, offering or requirement in this Bulletin and to determine whether a student has satisfactorily met its requirements for admission or graduation.

All academic units establish certain academic requirements that must be met before a degree is granted. Advisors, program chairs, and the provost are available to help the student understand and meet these requirements, but the student is responsible for fulfilling them. If, at the end of a student’s course of study, the requirements for graduation have not been met, the degree will not be granted. For this reason, it is important for each student to acquaint themselves with all academic requirements throughout their college careers and to be responsible for completing all such requirements within prescribed deadlines and time limits.
