The University seeks to provide a Prospectus for each course so that
prospective students have a well-informed idea of the nature and
requirements of our courses. A Prospectus, however, is a generalized
syllabus. A formal course syllabus is made available for each course
when the semester begins. A registered student may drop a course
with a 100% refund of tuition if the student officially withdraws
(drops) a course prior to the first day of classes of the semester
or during the Late Registration (Add/Drop) Period as noted in
the Academic Calendar.
