The College of Mount Saint Vincent (CMSV) Student Handbook is written and issued by the Division of Student Affairs. It is the College’s official notification of the College’s policies, procedures, rules, regulations and standards of conduct. Students are responsible for reading and thoroughly knowing all of the information contained in this Student Handbook and the CMSV Undergraduate and Graduate Catalogs. These two publications constitute the student’s contract with the College. A complete explanation of academic policies can be found in these Catalogs. The College Catalogs and the Student Handbook are available on-line. Enrollment is considered an acceptance of all conditions specified in the Handbook and the Catalogs.
Since policies and procedures cannot be static in a changing environment, the information contained in this Student Handbook is subject to change by the College at any time. Accordingly, neither this Handbook, nor any parts of it, may be relied upon as a contract. The College may reproduce or modify this Handbook, or parts of it, for distribution in other formats (for example, on a web page or in other formats for computer access, or in academic department publications). As a result students, applicants, or other users of this Handbook should consult with appropriate College offices to verify the current text or status of the policies, procedures, rules, regulations or other information contained in this Handbook or other publications to determine whether information in this Handbook has been superseded or changed.
