The University reserves the right to make changes in regulations governing any program listed in this calendar from time to time. All such changes apply to new and continuing students. However, students continuing in the same program will be phased into the new program regulations without extending the number of courses required for their degree. Where a required course for a degree program is no longer offered, the faculty may specify an alternate. Students who interrupt their program for 12 months or more will normally be required to comply with new regulations upon resumption of their studies. Students should refer to the appropriate faculty section for regulations governing their specific academic programs.
