2016-2017 Evening, Weekend, Online Academic Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

Academic Policies

The following policies, in addition to those outlined at the beginning of this catalog, guide the matriculation, withdrawal, and graduation of Lakeland undergraduate students, as well as establish the normal rules by which classes are conducted and credit is granted.

Contingent upon continuous enrollment, students will be allowed to complete any degree program offered by Lakeland University on the date of their first course enrollment, providing no substantive curricular changes have been made. Continuous enrollment is defined as completion of a minimum of one three-semester-hour course each three-term period. Students will be required to apply for readmission before registering for courses after a period of non-enrollment which exceeds two terms. If degree requirements have changed since the time of one’s last admission to Lakeland, the reapplication process will revise one’s degree plan in accord with the new requirements.

Lakeland’s academic policies all assume that the basic credit unit is the semester hour. One Lakeland semester hour is equivalent to 1.5-quarter hours. Unless designated otherwise, all Lakeland courses carry three semester hours of credit.

Students who believe they have legitimate grounds for appealing or being excluded from the requirements of any Lakeland academic policy included in this catalog should address those appeals to the Provost.
