Academic Regulations

All students in the Ernestine M. Raclin School of the Arts should familiarize themselves with the Academic Regulations and Policies of the university in the front section of this Campus Bulletin . A number of specialized regulations apply to the school.

Occasional changes in the graduation requirements for Ernestine M. Raclin School of the Arts majors may lead to uncertainty as to which bulletin is applicable for a given graduating student. For the general education requirements and other academic matters, the student may choose either the bulletin in effect at the time of matriculation to IU South Bend or the bulletin in effect at the time of graduation. For meeting requirements of the major, the choice is between the bulletin in effect when the student certifies into the Ernestine M. Raclin School of the Arts and the bulletin in effect when the student graduates.

The Student's Responsibility

All colleges establish certain academic requirements that must be met before a degree is granted. These regulations concern such things as curricula and courses, the requirements for majors and minors, and university procedures. Advisors, directors, and deans are available to advise students on how to meet these requirements, but each student is individually responsible for fulfilling them. If requirements have not been satisfied, the degree will be withheld pending adequate fulfillment. For this reason, it is important for each student to be well acquainted with all requirements described in this Campus Bulletin.
