Acceptance of registration by the University of Nebraska and admission to any educational program of the University does not constitute a contract or warranty that the University will continue indefinitely to offer the program in which a student is enrolled. The University expressly reserves the right to change, phase out, or discontinue any program.
The listing of courses contained in any University bulletin, catalog, or schedule is by way of announcement only and shall not be regarded as an offer of contract. The University expressly reserves the right to (1) add or delete courses from its offerings, (2) change times or locations, (3) change academic calendars without notice, (4) cancel any course for insufficient registration, or (5) revise or change rules, charges fees, schedules, courses, requirements for degrees and any other policy or regulation affecting students, including, but not limited to, evaluation standards, whenever the same is considered to be in the best interests of the University.
This bulletin is in effect beginning with the 1998-2000 academic year. Students should keep this bulletin for referral throughout their academic career. Students who first enroll at UNK after May 1996 must fulfill the requirements stated in this bulletin, or they may elect to substitute the requirements in any subsequent bulletin published while they are enrolled in the University. A student must, however, meet the requirements from one bulletin only rather than choosing a portion from one bulletin and the remainder from another.
If a student takes longer than five calendar years to complete a degree, UNK reserves the right to require the student to meet the more recent requirements for graduation. Curriculum changes or modifications require that all new program requirements be met regardless of course work previously completed.
The University of Nebraska at Kearney does not discriminate in its academic, admissions or employment policies and abides by all federal, state, and regental regulations pertaining to same.
The University of Nebraska is an affirmative action/equal opportunity institution.
