CDM Academic Policies
Academic policies protect the integrity of academic curricula and provide the checks and balances necessary to maintain the standards set forth by the University. All students are expected to be familiar with University policies that are documented in the University catalog and student handbooks, as well as college-level policies outlined on the college website. Knowing these policies and referencing them on a regular basis allow students, faculty, staff, and administrators the ability to operate under the same set of expectations as all parties work together to achieve the best possible student experience.
Exceptions to academic policy are rare. In cases where severe extenuating circumstances prevent adherence to a policy, students should first consult with an advisor in the CDM Academic Success Center to determine an appropriate course of action. If it is determined that a policy appeal should be submitted, the student must submit the appeal online via MyCDM
