Academic Council Homepage


Enforcement, interpretation, and waiving of academic regulations are handled by the Academic Council, a standing committee of the Faculty Senate.

The Academic Council makes recommendations on matters which affect the academic standards of the college, including consideration of admission, grading, graduation, and course transfer issues.

A student who wishes exemption from any college requirement shall prepare a petition after consultation with a counselor. The student may present the petition personally to the council or have it presented by a counselor. The administration will apply policies established by the council to student petitions.
