2016-2017 Official University Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]
2016-2017 Official University Catalog
About the Catalog
With regard to academic programs, this catalog is valid for students who first enroll at LeTourneau University in Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 and for students who choose to change to programs within this catalog from an earlier catalog. Students who first enroll in Summer 2017 may be under this catalog or the 2017-2018 catalog, depending on the program in which they enroll. Students are responsible for knowing which catalog applies to them and should discuss this with their advisor or the Office of the Registrar. Policies herein apply to all LeTourneau students, on ground, online, and at any location, unless otherwise specified.
The LeTourneau University catalog is produced by the Office of the Registrar in conjunction with the Office of the Provost and contains general academic and administrative information and specific descriptions of degree programs offered. The electronic version of the catalog is the University’s official version. Any print version will not be considered the official catalog.
Because the catalog is prepared in advance of the academic year covered, some changes will inevitably occur. Every effort is made to provide accurate information regarding course offerings. All courses are offered subject to instructor availability and sufficient enrollment. The University reserves the right to change or update policies without prior notice, including but not limited to tuition, fees, credit hour per course, course offerings, curricula, grading policies, graduation and program requirements, and admission standards.
Published in July 2016, this catalog supersedes all previous catalogs. The policies expressed in this catalog and each subsequent one will be controlling, regardless of any policies stated in a previous catalog received by the student upon admission. This catalog and subsequent ones are supplemented by the rules and regulations stated in institutional publications including the Student Handbook and on the University website. When conflicts exist between any of these sources, the most recent rule, regulation, or policy will be applied.
The student is responsible for meeting all graduation requirements for degrees, concentrations, and specializations in accordance with the catalog. Students must meet the requirements of the catalog in effect when they first attend LeTourneau University except in the following circumstances: 1) students who elect to participate in a program in a catalog published after they matriculate must meet all degree requirements listed in the updated catalog and 2) students who leave the University for one academic year or more must meet the requirements of the most updated catalog upon returning to the University.
In accordance with applicable provisions of federal law, applicants for employment who are in agreement with the educational mission of LeTourneau University and applicants for admission to educational programs or activities are considered without discrimination on the basis of race, age, sex, handicapping condition, national origin, or genetic information. Inquiries about this policy should be directed to the Director of Human Resources.
Students may petition for exceptions to catalog policy or to make changes to their program of study. For exceptions to catalog policy the petition should be directed toward the Office of the Provost; petitions for exceptions to program of study should be directed to the department or school.
