ACADEMIC POLICIES AND REGULATIONSRegistration
Students are required to register in person on the registration day specified in the University calendar. Failure to register on that day may result in the loss of enrollment in the class. Full tuition fees and all prior debts must be paid in full on or before registration day of each academic year. Matriculation is subject to the satisfactory completion of all academic requirements and the receipt of a final transcript from all undergraduate universities attended.
Students' Academic Advising
Students will be assigned a faculty advisor upon matriculation. Faculty advising should be considered a privilege of the academic process. This is a valuable opportunity to develop and sustain individual contacts between faculty and students on both academic and personal levels. It is the student's responsibility to meet with his/her faculty advisor at least once a semester. If either the student or faculty member does not find the relationship helpful, either party is free to seek a change. This request should be made to the Academic Dean.
Professional Behavior and Demeanor
Students enrolled at SVU must demonstrate professionalism in their studies at school and in their real world career. Students are expected to hold themselves to high standards of ethical conduct while attending SVU. Plagiarism and cheating are not accepted under any circumstances. For more details, please consult the Student Handbook.
A health-insurance plan is mandatory for all international students. All international students must carry a valid health insurance plan while enrolled at SVU. Evidence of such a plan must be provided to SVU before successfully completing enrollment.
