[Student Records and General Academic Policies]
Thorough knowledge of the academic regulations and policies of the University and its academic divisions is essential for all students. Each student is expected to become familiar with the University of Alabama undergraduate catalog and to consult with the academic advisers provided by the student's division.
Each student is responsible for selecting and registering for the courses that (a) are needed to maintain reasonable progress toward the desired degree; (b) will satisfy all requirements for the desired degree by the time the student expects to graduate; and (c) conform to University regulations. Students are expected to pursue successful completion of the courses for which they register.
Students are also responsible for the following:
- The student must maintain on file in the Office of Academic Records and University Registrar a current mailing address and a current local residence address.
- The student must inform the Office of Academic Records and University Registrar and the appropriate dean's office of any address change.
- The student must respond promptly to all communications received from The University of Alabama.
