The Bethune-Cookman University Graduate Catalog provides current information concerning academic programs, policies, procedures, and requirements pertinent to satisfying requirements for a degree and being graduated from the University. Schedules of classes, derived partly from information in the Graduate Catalog and any changes thereto, announce courses offered each semester. Announcements of final examinations and graduation activities derive from this document. The University reserves the right to change this publication, including program requirements and/or University-wide graduation requirements. Information regarding changes in the Graduate Catalog will be readily available in the offices of the Provost, Academic School Dean, Department Head, and Office Administrators. Such changes will supersede those here and, while every effort will be made to communicate such changes as widely as possible, no direct notice to individual students should be expected. The University uses its Internet-based Webmail program as the primary vehicle for communicating with enrolled students. Therefore, each student will want to activate his or her web address and login daily.
To graduate from the University, the student is responsible for completing graduate program requirements. In addition, each student must write and defend a thesis. Faculty members are responsible for providing instruction and advisement to assist students in successfully completing all requirements leading to graduation.
The Graduate Catalog of Bethune-Cookman University is, in effect, an agreement between the students and the University. It contains information concerning academic requirements as well as specific regulations of the University. Each student should familiarize himself with its provisions in order to prevent unnecessary uncertainty, difficulties, and delays that will impede progress toward graduation. While this catalog accurately reflects the programs, policies and requirements of the institution at the time of printing, the University reserves the right to change or amend its contents in any way deemed necessary.
