Carteret Community College publishes an annual College Catalog & Student Handbook (catalog) that establishes the policies, procedures, and standards in place for a particular academic year.  Students enrolled in any given academic year are subject to and protected by the catalog in effect for each academic year in which they are enrolled.  The College Catalog & Student Handbook shall not be revised during an academic year unless mandated by local, state, or federal law, in which case the change shall be clearly distinguished as an “addendum” to the catalog.  The College may decide to publish the catalog online, but it must keep an archive of annual catalogs to be referenced by students in the event they have questions or disputes over the execution of policies, procedures, or standards in any particular year of enrollment.  The catalog is updated annually by the Dean of Student Services and reviewed by all relevant faculty, staff, and administrators for relevancy and accuracy.
