Catalog Disclaimer & Statement of Nondiscrimination

Gadsden State Community College attempts to provide clear and accurate information about its programs and services through various media, especially through this catalog and handbook.  Changes, however, inevitably occur after the catalog is printed.  Therefore, the statements in this book are not the basis of a contract between the College and the student.  Gadsden State Community College will try to do what this catalog/handbook indicates that it will do and will make every effort to make students aware of any changes.  However, the College has the right to change any provision appearing in this publication without notifying a student individually.  If the College decides that it must abolish the program in which a student is enrolled, it may substitute a limited number of courses to ensure the student’s opportunity for program completion.
