Academic life at Springfield College is governed by a series of policies and regulations that ensure consistency and permit fairness to all students. These policies are under the auspices of the Office of Academic Affairs. They are managed by the Office of the Registrar which is responsible for preparing class schedules, enrolling students in courses, and compiling and maintaining grade reports and records. Student’s transcripts and certifying eligibility for loans take place at the Office of the Registrar, which is located on the first floor of the Administration Building.
Academic policies apply to all students enrolled for the current academic year. Specific program requirements and course descriptions apply to entering matriculated students for the duration of their enrollment as degree-seeking students.
