Policies, Services, and Support

Students should be familiar with college policies and procedures.

The Catalog provides information related to academic policies and available support services,  as well as students' responsibilities, expectations, and rights.   Below is a partial list of important policies and support services you will find more information about in the Student Handbook and Catalog:
