The information in this catalog is current at the time of publication. Ringling College of Art and Design reserves the right to correct errors and make changes in policy, curricula and fees as circumstances dictate subsequent to publication.
Students pursuing a degree are obligated to fulfill the requirements as they are listed in the catalog for the semester in which they enrolled in that program. It is expected that students have knowledge of the information contained herein.
If the requirements change after a student has enrolled in a program, students have the option of fulfilling either the old or new requirements. If a student elects to fulfill the old requirements and find that necessary courses have been eliminated or substantially revised, the student may substitute other courses with the approval of the Vice President for Academic Affairs (VPAA). If a revision is required by an external accreditation certification body, and this body submits a written statement to the College that the accreditation of a program or certification of its graduates is in jeopardy unless students fulfill the new requirements, the option of fulfilling the old requirements may not apply.
Students returning from a withdrawal or absence exceeding one semester will require a review by the Department Head and Dean of Undergraduate Studies who will subsequently recommend course standing to the VPAA for a final decision.
