Catalog Purpose


This catalog is intended to be a fair summary of certain matters of interest to students at the time of publication; however, its readers should be aware: (1) that this catalog is not intended to be a complete statement of all procedures, policies, rules, and regulations by which the college is operated, (2) that the college reserves the right to change without notice any academic or other requirements, course offerings, course contents, which may be contained in this catalog, and (3) that departmental procedures, policies, rules, and regulations, whether or not contained in this catalog, may be applicable to students in those departments.

A student is responsible for meeting all requirements for graduation.

In addition, students planning to transfer to another institution have the sole responsibility to determine that their course of study at the college will qualify for such transfer.

Changes to this Catalog

Eastern Gateway Community College is committed to offering students a robust, current, and relevant curriculum. Curriculum, policies, and other matters discussed herein are subject to change at the discretion of the College. When changes need to be made, and Addendum to the Catalog will be published and posted on the website at www.egcc.edu with the changes noted. However, curriculum will not be changed to require existing students to take more credits to graduate than their original degree program, unless required by accreditation, state agencies, or other regulatory bodies. In this case, the College will ensure there is no adverse financial impact on the student. Changes will be reflected in an addendum to this catalog and will then be considered an integral part of this publication.
