Responsibility for Academic Policies
1. The By-Laws of the Faculty state that “the primary responsibility of the Faculty as a body is the planning and guidance of the educational program and policy of the College.” In exercising its function, the Faculty establishes these regulations governing curriculum requirements and academic standards.
2. Specific requirements, including amendment of these regulations, are subject to the approval of the Faculty. Ordinarily, revision of requirements or of regulations stems from proposals made through the Faculty Committee on Educational Policy.
Student Responsibility & Individual Exceptions
Students are responsible for knowing and meeting applicable degree requirements and other academic regulations pertaining to them. Questions regarding regulations should be raised with the student’s advisor or the Registrar. Requests for individual exceptions should be directed through the Registrar to the Curriculum Requirements Committee.
These regulations apply to all students, but address principally full-time students who are candidates for a bachelor’s degree from Davidson College. For other categories, see the Appendix.
