As a supplement to Lakeland University’s Traditional Undergraduate Program academic catalog, and as the official academic catalog of Lakeland University’s William R. Kellett School of Adult Education, this publication lists courses and programs in the undergraduate and graduate curricula, graduation requirements, and academic and financial policies in effect as of the beginning of the fall term, 2016.
The provisions of this catalog are to be considered a guide and not an irrevocable contract between the student and the university. The college reserves the right to make changes that seem necessary or desirable, including course and program modifications and/or cancellations.
Contingent upon continuous enrollment, a student will be allowed to complete any degree program offered by Lakeland University on the date of his/her first course enrollment, providing no substantive curricular changes have been made during the student’s period of attendance. All programs leading to licensure may be subject to alterations due to changes in state mandates. Students who have left the university and are eligible to return are required to follow the degree requirements in place at the point of their return. The college reserves the right to ask students to withdraw for cause at any time.
