The college reserves the right to modify its regulations at any time to conform with current university and graduate school practice.

The graduate division offers courses during the regular summer, fall and spring sessions.

Students must assume the responsibility of acquainting themselves with all requirements pertaining to their program of study and of adhering to them. This involves a careful reading of the Canisius College Catalog and of departmental and graduate division notices. When in doubt, they should avail themselves of the advice of their department chair or program director.
