Student Right to Know
Welcome to Cumberland University to both new and returning students! Going to college means classes, books, studying, juggling clocks and calendars, and adjusting to the college scene. We intend to offer as many tools as possible to help you achieve a level of success that will make you proud of your achievements.
The aspects mentioned above are only a part of university life. The emphasis on academic achievement is certainly important and we wish you well in your classes. However, since CU is a total university, our concern for students includes the total college experience. We encourage our students to participate fully in college life and to become involved both in and out of the class. Look around and you will readily see a host of activities that complement your academic experience and contribute to a more enjoyable college experience.
The college experience also means living in a community that is committed to respect and dignity for all and to an environment of openness and civility. This letter provides information relative to student rights, responsibilities and other pertinent information. There is also a link to the Student Life website which contains a host of information for CU students relative to policies and procedures and a link to the University Catalog and to the Student Handbook, both of which provides information about withdrawing from the University, refund policies, current academic programs, names of accrediting bodies, special information for students with disabilities, and information about available student financial assistance.
The office of Student Affairs promises to work to make your college experience exciting and rewarding. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
Good luck and have a great year.
