Academic Policies

Each university student is subject to two sets of academic regulations—those of the University as a whole, which are cited in this section, and the academic rules of the college and program in which he or she is enrolled. The academic rules of colleges and programs are listed in sections devoted to college programs.

In registering for courses, each student assumes full responsibility for knowledge of and compliance with the definitions, regulations, and procedures for the University, as set forth in this publication. Moreover, in accepting admission to the University, each student assumes responsibility for knowledge of and compliance with the definitions, regulations, and procedures of the University pertaining to his or her student status as set forth in the appropriate University of Massachusetts Lowell publications.

Students who have questions about the interpretation or application of University academic policy should consult the dean of their college or the Office of the Provost.
