The academic requirements and regulations of Marymount University are published in this official university catalog and in other university announcements. This catalog was prepared with information available at the time of publication and is subject to change. The university reserves the right to terminate programs or change its program requirements, content and sequence of courses, and program offerings contained in this catalog from time to time, with or without notice.

By enrolling in classes at Marymount University, a student consents to the use of their name, likeness, image, and voice by the university or its designees in any medium, such as publications, websites, and social media; for all purposes (including advertising and promotional materials); and in electronic or hard copy. Students who do not want their individual photograph or image to be used should notify the photographer/videographer and submit a Request to Withhold Image form through the student portal.

The provost and senior vice president for academic affairs is the official representative of the university in matters pertaining to the scholastic life of the student body. Regulations made by the provost in addition to, in abrogation of, or in interpretation of the regulations stated herein have the same force as the regulations themselves. Further information and advice regarding academic regulations may be secured by inquiring in the Office of the Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and in the Office of the Registrar.

The requirements to be met by a student are stated in the university catalog current at the time of the student’s initial matriculation or declaration of a major. Students are responsible for the information contained in the university catalog; they are to be acquainted with and assume responsibility for all requirements of their degree program. Failure to read and comply with university regulations will not exempt students from those regulations. In case of ambiguity, discrepancy, or disagreement, the regulations stated in this catalog and any subsequent modifications or interpretations by the provost and senior vice president for academic affairs will prevail. Students separating from the university for one year or more are bound by the catalog in effect when they are readmitted.

Official email correspondence from the university is sent to students’ Marymount email accounts. Students are responsible for checking their Marymount email on a regular basis for important announcements. Failure to check email accounts will not exempt students from meeting university deadlines or complying with university policies and procedures announced via email.

In the event of an emergency or other disruption of normal campus operations, Marymount University will implement a plan for meeting the needs of all members of the university community. Should the university be required to close for a period of time, we are committed to implementing actions to deliver our educational programs to our students. These actions may include for example altering and extending the duration of the traditional term schedule to complete essential instruction in the traditional format and/or use of distance instructional methods. Specific strategies will vary from class to class, depending on the format of the course and the timing of the emergency or other disruption of normal campus operations. Faculty will communicate class-specific information to students via university e-mail and Canvas, while students must inform their faculty immediately of any absence. Students are responsible for checking their university e-mail regularly and keeping themselves informed of emergencies or other disruptions of normal campus operations. In the event of an emergency or other disruption of normal campus operations, students should refer to the student portal and the university website for general university-wide information.
