This catalog is an educational guidebook for our students at Roanoke College, as well as a source of information for prospective students and others interested in the College. It describes the requirements for all academic programs and for graduation. It provides information about financial aid and scholarships. It sets forth regulations and faculty policies that govern academic life and acquaints students with the Roanoke College faculty and staff.

I encourage every student to become familiar with the contents of the Catalog. If any portion of it needs further explanation, faculty advisors and staff members in the Office of the Registrar and the Office of Academic Services stand ready to answer any questions. Although there are advisors to assist, ultimately, it is the responsibility of the student to register correctly, to complete the necessary course work for graduation, and to abide by the academic regulations of the College, as set forth by the faculty.
