Academic Catalogs Audit – On-Demand Training

Sale price$399.00


Address Critical Policies To Ensure Compliance

Academic catalogs are much more than a calendar, general information, course descriptions and program requirements – they are a contract between any student and the institution. Although you reserve the right to change, modify, revoke, or add to the College’s academic, financial, or student requirements or regulations at any time and without prior notice, to do so without careful consideration of the law and impact on students could be a costly mistake.

Join our seasoned expert as he provides a compendium of important information regarding catalog development, critical legal policies that need to be included and a refined process for annually updating and editing your academic catalog to ensure compliance.

Prevent frustration and protect your institution from legal challenges by editing your academic catalog annually to ensure it reflects your institution’s mission, classroom behavior guidelines and course requirements.

Topics Covered

Gain crucial, actionable takeaways that will help you to:

  • Develop an academic catalog that reflects your institution’s mission, classroom behavior guidelines, course descriptions and graduation requirements – prevent frustration from your faculty, staff, and students by creating clear expectations and requirements.
  • Incorporate higher education legal regulations (FERPA, ADA/Section 504 Policy, Title IX) into the catalog – recognize this is a legally binding contract between any student and the institution and take care accordingly.
  • Address the potential overlap, outdated requirements, or policies – foster confidence that you are providing clear expectations, that policies are relevant, and that policies uphold the educational integrity of your institution.
  • Engage critical stakeholders including faculty, staff, legal counsel and students in the development and annual audit of the academic catalog – create the most valuable academic tool that safeguards the integrity of your institution.
  • Incorporate clear language when sharing expectations, requirements, and policies – avoid confusion for end users and support their educational exploration and degree attainment.
