Academic Policies

Advising

The college requires all freshmen and pre-computer science, pre-engineering, engineering transfer, and CECS Undecided students to see their advisors before they register each semester. These students are also required to take UNI 102 Strat for Academic Success.

Degree Evaluation

It is important to consult Degree Works, which can be found in the myMU portal, about degree progress. Degree Works is used to verify progress toward degree and degree completion status. All courses completed and all courses needed for the degree are listed. If there are questions about Degree Works, please consult your faculty advisor.

Determining Your Catalog

You must meet the catalog requirements in effect at the time you declare your major. You then have ten years in which to complete your program. If you do not meet graduation requirements in this ten-year period, then you must meet the curriculum requirements of the catalog in effect at the date of graduation. If you decide to change your major within CECS or to transfer to another college at Marshall, you are governed by the catalog in effect at the time of change.

Academic Probation and Suspension

Please consult the university’s policy on academic probation or suspension.
