Verifications - Verification of student records includes verification of attendance dates; graduation dates; major in which degree was earned; number of credit hours completed at M.S.U.; whether enrolled half-time, part-time or full-time and the semester of enrollment; anticipated graduation date; and date of withdrawal from the University.

Students' Records- It is the responsibility of the Office of Records and Registration to house and maintain the records of students. The office treats such information in a confidential manner, and exercises the highest levels of integrity in the dissemination of such records. The Office of Record and Registration complies with all Federal, State, and University rules and policies with regard to privacy.

Baltimore Student Exchange Program- The Baltimore Student Exchange Program encourages a variety of unique educational opportunities to meet the needs of the Morgan students beyond what the campus boundaries provide. Two aspects of this program, which are offered through the Office of Records and Registration, include: (1) BSEP program of the State Colleges of Maryland and (2) the Academic Cooperative Program.

The BSEP Program of the State colleges is divided into two facets: (a) Greater Baltimore area 4-year institutions and (b) other 4-year State institutions. The first facet is a cooperative arrangement, which exists between Coppin, Morgan, Towson, and University of Baltimore. The second facet includes Frostburg and Salisbury. Students eligible to participate in these programs must have full-time, undergraduate status (except Freshmen) and good academic (as determined by the Home institution). The cost is equal to the cost of attendance at the Home institution.

The Academic BSEP Program, instituted in September 1973, is a BSEP arrangement between Goucher, Johns Hopkins (College of Arts and Sciences only), Loyola, Morgan, Notre Dame, and Towson. This program is also open to full-time day students (except Freshmen) during the Fall and Spring Semesters only.

Additional information may be secured from by contacting the Office of Records and Registration.

Drop/ Add- Classes may be dropped without academic penalty according to the deadline published in the academic calendar. Discontinued attendance DOES NOT constitute dropping a class and such action will result in the grade of an "F", which is computed in the average as well as being held accountable for the cost of the class. Classes may be added as specified in the published schedule booklets each semester.
