Colleges and Universities have specific requirements which must be met before a degree can be obtained. These requirements involve particular courses and curricula, residence on campus, and grade point averages. Advisors and deans are happy, upon request, to help students meet these requirements and to maintain accounts of their progress. A student’s official record is available to him/her at any time during normal office hours in the Office of the Registrar. The responsibility for meeting the requirements for a degree rests with the individual student. If all requirements are not completed, a degree cannot be awarded; therefore, it is important for the student to acquaint himself/herself with all University requirements and to make progress toward meeting them.
Inclusive Language Statement
Language-how it is used and what it implies-plays a crucial role in Samford University’s mission to “nurture persons.” Because verbal constructions create realities, inclusive language can uphold or affirm those whom we seek to nurture, while exclusive language can damage or defeat them. We, therefore, actively seek a discourse in our University community that supports the equal dignity and participation of men and women; we seek to avoid verbal constructions that diminish the equal dignity of all persons. It is an affirmative-and affirming-part of our mission to educate students, staff, and faculty in the creation of a community of equality and respect through language.
Information contained in this catalog is accurate as of the date of publication. Samford University reserves the right, however, to make such changes in educational and financial policy-due notice being given-as the Samford Board of Trustees may deem consonant with sound academic and fiscal practice. The University further reserves the right to ask a student to withdraw at any time.
