Admissions, Continuation & Graduation Standards:
Guiding Principles for Academic Programs

Colleges, departments and academic programs have the primary responsibility for establishing the entrance and exit requirements for their majors, minors, emphases and certificate programs. Factors such as accreditation, practica, upper-level class performance, pre-professional exams, and post-graduate work, may shape a program’s expectations. Enrollment management should not be the sole consideration in determining admissions, continuation and graduation requirements. Such requirements should not be based on any single criteria, but rather on an appropriate variety of factors.

Programs adding or changing requirements or standards should consider any potential substantial impact of the change on other programs, and should include implementation dates and plans for notifying current and prospective students of any changes.
