Student Academic Success-Degree Completion Policy
The goal of the Student Academic Success-Degree Completion Policy is to promote undergraduate student success. The policy establishes a structured framework to guide all students to completion of an undergraduate degree within a reasonable period of time. Academic units provide 4-year templates that students can use to develop a program of study that will meet the course requirements for a degree. Students are responsible for developing plans of study, with the assistance of their academic advisers. Academic units monitor student progress and assist students at risk of falling behind benchmarks in their plans. The policy in essence establishes a process to provide a pathway to completion of a degree for each student, initially created and then adjusted over time as needed to meet each students particular circumstances. The policy is described in more detail in the section on Academic Advising.
