Catalog Policies and Disclaimers

The North Carolina Agricultural and Technical University Graduate Catalog contains academic policies and regulations that relate to graduate courses, graduate degree programs and graduate certificate programs.  The Graduate School staff will be responsible for interpreting policies and regulations stated in the Catalog as needed.

The University reserves the right to change any of the rules and regulations of the University at any time, including those relating to admission, instruction, and graduation.  The University also reserves the right to withdraw curricula and specific courses, alter course content, change the calendar, and to impose or increase tuition and fees.

The requirements specified in this Catalog apply to students who commence their studies at North Carolina A&T State University during the 2012-2013 academic year and who remain in continuous enrollment at the institution until they graduate.  If requirements are changed, students may elect to comply with the new requirements or to remain under the requirements by which they are governed at the time of the change.  A student who elects to comply with the requirements of a newer catalog must do so by declaring such intent in writing at least one semester prior to graduation.  This declaration must be approved by the academic department and the Graduate School.

Students who change their program of study are bound by the requirements of their new program of study that are in effect the semester they officially begin studies in the new program.  Furthermore, students who are readmitted to the University are bound by the program and degree requirements in force at the time of readmission.
