Academic Policies and Procedures

Once you are admitted to Shippensburg University, you will need to understand and follow all academic policies and procedures in order to successfully complete your course of study. University officials such as your faculty advisor, department chair, and academic dean can provide assistance, but it is ultimately your responsibility to be aware of policies relating to grading, academic progress, withdrawal from courses, declaring or changing majors, and requirements for graduation. This chapter explains the general academic policies. The chapter, University Curricula, discusses the particular degree programs, majors, and the general education requirements.
