Approval of Courses, Programs, and Regulations

Academic programs, courses, and curricular regulations are developed and approved by appropriate bodies of faculty. Degree programs are also approved by the chancellor and the Institutes of Higher Learning.

The Undergraduate Council approves all undergraduate courses, programs, and academic regulations applicable to this level of study. Similarly, the Graduate Council approves all graduate courses, programs, and academic regulations applicable to graduate and professional-level study. Details of the procedures for approving courses and curricular changes, undergraduate programs, and graduate programs are available in the Policy Directory.

The policies and regulations contained in this online University of Mississippi Catalog are in effect for the current or selected semester.
