Notice to Students

Catalog Provisions

Walters State Community College offers the opportunity for students to increase their know-ledge by providing programs of instruction in the various disciplines and programs through qualified professional faculty. The acquisition and retention of knowledge by any student is, however, contingent upon the student’s desire and ability to learn and application of appropriate study techniques to any course or program. Therefore, Walters State limits representation of student preparedness in any field of study to that competency demonstrated at that specific point in time at which appropriate academic measurements were taken to certify course or program completion.

CALENDAR NOTE: The calendar is subject to change at any time prior to or during an academic term due to emergencies or causes beyond the reasonable control of the institution, including severe weather, loss of utility services, or orders by federal or state agencies.

FEE NOTE: Certain fees and other charges as well as the refund policy could have changed since the printing of this catalog. Current fee assessments and the refund policy are printed in the current Timetable of Classes which may be obtained through the department of Admissions and Registration Services.

EFFECTIVE PERIOD: Degree/certificate requirements listed in this catalog are in effect for seven years from the beginning of the first academic term listed in this catalog.

This catalog is continuously under examination and revision and is not intended to state contractual terms. This catalog does not constitute a contract between the student and Walters State Community College.
