This catalog is intended to give such a description of the work of the University and such a digest of its rules as are needed by the students. By the end of the academic year, a new catalog will have been issued superseding all previous catalogs. The catalog year will begin on June 1st each year.
All colleges and universities establish certain requirements which must be met before a degree is granted. These requirements concern courses, majors, minors (if needed), grades, grade point average(s), senior residency, and other stipulations with which the student must comply. Advisors, department heads, and academic deans will help a student meet these requirements, but the student is responsible for fulfilling them. It is the student's responsibility to schedule needed courses, complete prerequisites where necessary, and plan ahead so that all requirements will be fulfilled. Upon the completion of required course work, personnel of the University will determine whether or not the student has met the requirements for a degree. If the requirements have not been met, the degree will be refused until such time as they have been completed. For this reason, it is important for each student to become acquainted with the degree requirements and to remain informed of subsequent changes.
Also, it is necessary in the general administration of a university to establish broad policies and to lay down certain regulations and procedures by which they may be carried out. It is important that a student understand the policies and know the regulations and procedures which must be followed.
This catalog is presented, therefore, not only to enable prospective students and others to learn about Southeastern Louisiana University, but to state policies, requirements, regulations, and procedures in such form as will be helpful to the student. Students must abide by the current catalog for all University rules, regulations and policies.
The University year is divided into three semesters: summer, fall, and spring. The summer semester begins in June and is completed in July. The fall semester begins in August and is completed in December. The spring semester begins in January and is completed in May. For more information, see the University Academic Calendar.
