Statement of Academic Policy


This document describes regulations used by the Academic Standards Committee (ASC) for its decisions, and for the procedures to implement them. The ASC acts within the framework of this Statement at its own discretion and retains the right to change policy in individual cases.

Student Responsibility

Information on Claremont McKenna College’s academic policies and procedures is provided in this Catalog in the Statement of Academic Policy as outlined below and the Statement of Academic Integrity . The regulations referring to the bachelor of arts degree are designed for undergraduate students; graduate students must also refer to the Robert Day School Graduate Student Handbook for information on degree requirements and other policies. It is the responsibility of each student to be aware of and to meet the College’s requirements for graduation, and to adhere to all other rules, regulations, and deadlines published in the CMC Catalog, the Statement of Academic Policy, the Statement of Academic Integrity , or provided in other information distributed to each student with (pre-)registration materials, including the five college schedule of course offerings. Students are also responsible for insuring that instructors receive all assignments, especially when assignments are submitted electronically or left for pick-up. New students are required to attend an orientation session on academic dishonesty in general and different forms of plagiarism in particular. All students must sign a statement confirming they are familiar with CMC’s policies and expectations with regard to academic dishonesty.
