Applicants should be aware that the courses listed under each program are not offered every year but are offered in a cycle over a five-year period, the time allotted for the completion of all requirements for the degree.

Because the majority of students matriculating for the degree are attending part-time, it is impossible to indicate the academic session when each course is expected to be offered. However, a separate printed schedule is published approximately two months in advance of every session (fall, spring, summer) detailing which courses are to be offered, the days, times, rooms and professors.

The College reserves the right to withdraw or modify any of the courses, costs or programs listed in this catalog, to cancel any course or program for which it deems registration insufficient, usually less than ten registrants, to make any other changes which it considers necessary or desirable.

All students must provide evidence of immunization against measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) before attending classes. Such documentation may be provided by a student's physician or former school health official. If a student is unable to produce evidence of the dates of required immunizations, s/he may submit blood test results that indicate immunity to Measles, Mumps and Rubella. Health Services can conduct the blood test, although the student will be responsible for outside laboratory charges for analysis. Free Measles/Mumps  /Rubella immunizations are available at our campus Health Services office in Alumni Hall, Suite 104. Students born before 01/01/57 are exempt from the MMR requirement. All students are also required to submit a Meningococcal Meningitis Response Form and indicate whether or not they have had, or intend to receive this vaccine. Although the Meningococcal Meningitis vaccine is not required at this time, students must submit the Response Form in accordance with New York State law. Copies of all required health forms may be downloaded at the Health Services site: Health records may be faxed to (718) 862-7797. Students experiencing difficulty obtaining copies of their immunization records should call Health Services at (718) 862-7217 for assistance.
