Junior College

Cuttington University is historically committed to providing quality education to all who enter for study. The university firmly believes that learning is continuous, and therefore subscribes to the notion of lifelong learning. Each applicant is reviewed carefully based on entrance requirements as defined by the university. In choosing its students, Cuttington does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, religion, national origin, or personal disabilities. All students admitted are screened on placement examinations in English and Mathematics as determined by the Office of Admissions and Records.

Cuttington is academically “quality-driven”, and has historically provided for young people in Liberia and from other parts of Africa and the world, to have access to higher education. It reserves the right to grant or deny admission based on the guidelines set below.

CURRICULUM

The Junior College curriculum is liberal arts based; and that is, it assumes that students should have a general education drawn from broad academic areas, as well as specialized training in one major department, and that students should have the liberty within certain established guidelines and consultation with their faculty advisors, to select their own course of study.

Academic work is measured in terms of semester or credits hours. For a student to graduate, he/she must complete and pass a minimum number of semester hours with a grade point of 2.00 or better. The total numbers of semester hours are subdivided among the general education requirements, the major, the minor and electives or professional requirements for certification in specific areas of interest to the student. Specific requirements are listed with the college requirements.

All students are held responsible for the degree requirements in effect at the time of entrance; however if a student drops for a semester or more and returns he/she will be accountable for the degree requirements in effect at the point of return. Only upon appeal of the individual student to the Academic Standing Committee could there be any deviations from this policy. Such an appeal must be submitted within one semester after the date of return and the Committee will decide each case upon its own merits.

Required courses in the General Education Requirements are geared toward establishing a broad based liberal education. These courses are designed to develop qualitative thinking and communicative skills. They seek to introduce students to creative products of the human mind, to human society both past and present, and to the natural world in which mankind finds itself.
