The University of Mary Washington publishes two academic catalogs, one for undergraduate programs and one for graduate programs. These catalogs include official announcements of academic programs and major policies. Detailed policies of admission, financial aid, student life and academic affairs are published annually in separate documents, which may be obtained from the administrative offices responsible for those areas. Students are responsible for knowing the policies of the University of Mary Washington.

Although the listing of courses in this catalog indicates the content and scope of the curriculum, changes do occur, and the actual offerings in any term may differ from those indicated in preliminary announcements. Because programs and policies change from time to time according to procedures established by the faculty and administration of the University, statements in this catalog do not constitute an actual or implied contract between the student and the University.

The University of Mary Washington is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award baccalaureate and masters degrees. Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1886 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia, 30033-4097 or call 404-679-4500 for questions about the accreditation of the University of Mary Washington.
