Academic Policies and Governance
Manual of Academic Policies and Procedures
The Manual of Academic Policies and Procedures (MAPP), is an official academic manual maintained by the Committee on Academic Policies and Procedures.
Sections of the Manual
The MAPP covers the following areas and topics:
Admissions; Academic Advisement; Course Credit-Uses and Types; Course Load; Registration; Change of Curriculum, Major, Concentration, or Minor; Grading; Examinations; Academic Standards; Graduate Requirements and Residency Requirements; Academic Grievance Procedure; Reinstatement to the College; Attendance Regulations; Class Length and Cancelation; Field Trips; Student Records; Eligibility for Participation in Intercollegiate Sports; Web Communications.
Please Note: (10-24-23) MAPP is undergoing a major revision this year initially focused on Incompletes, W's, Leave of Absence and Declaration of Major policies. As policies are approved (revised or new), we will add or replace copy with dates. The W deadline recently shared via email should be followed this semester. For any policy-related questions, please email CAPP@ric.edu.
