Because enrollment limitations may require the exclusion of some qualified students from certain academic programs, the following policy has been adopted: Admission to the University, to a college, to a degree program, or to a major does not guarantee enrollment to any individual course, transfer from one college to another, or registration in any particular degree program or declaration of a particular major. Registration in or transfer from one degree program to another, or declaration of a major, is authorized only with the approval of the University through the academic deans. The University reserves the right to cancel or limit enrollment in any individual course.
Nothing in this Catalog may be considered as setting forth the terms of a contract between a student or prospective student and Bucknell University. The University reserves the right to modify the requirements for admission and graduation and the contents of this catalog at any time; to amend any regulation or policy affecting the student body; and to dismiss from the University any student if it is deemed by the University to be in its best interest or in the best interest of the student to do so.
