2020-2021 Academic Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]
2020-2021 Academic Catalog
The Furman University Catalog provides students, professors, and academic advisors with detailed information about academic regulations and programmatic offerings. Because educational processes change, the information and educational requirements represent a flexible program that may be altered at any time by Furman University. As the document of final authority for all students, the Furman University Catalog captures regulations and requirements in effect at the time of a student’s enrollment. Unless otherwise determined by formal faculty action, the requirements herein are in effect for students during the duration of their enrollment at the University.
The provisions of this catalog do not constitute an offer for a contract. Furman University reserves the right to change, without notice, any fee, provision, policy, procedure, offering, or requirement in this catalog and to determine whether a student has satisfactorily met Furman’s requirements for admission or the award of a degree.
All students should be aware final responsibility for satisfying graduation requirements is solely their own and their continued enrollment is dependent exclusively on their actions. Academic advisors are not expected to assume these student responsibilities at any time. Any academic unit may issue additional or more specific information that is consistent with approved policy. The information in the Furman University Catalog supersedes that issued by any other unit if there is a conflict between the two. If any faculty member of Furman University believes a policy contained in this section conflicts with academic freedom, the professor should notify the Dean of Faculty of the concern.
Furman’s undergraduate, evening studies and graduate students are expected to know and abide by the policies in the Catalog. Students should note that all Catalog policies are subject to University health and safety measures in response to the on-going pandemic and that where conflicts arise the University reserves the right to alter, interpret, and enforce our policies in order to comply with such measures. Students will be notified when health and safety measures can safely be suspended.
