Policies for CGCE Graduate & Post-Baccalaureate Students

Please click the image below to access the CGCE Graduate & Post-Baccaluareate Policies Guide. This guide contains a few of the key policies and procedures that should be followed in order to complete your academic program through the College of Graduate & Continuing Education at Rowan University. In most cases these policies either replace or add to the University-wide policies. All University-wide policies are included in the official Rowan University Student Handbook.

There are two important policy resources for Rowan CGCE Graduate & Post-Baccalaureate students:

1. The Rowan Student Handbook: The Rowan Student Handbook provides an overview of policies and practices governing undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, and graduate work at the institution. The University expects students to access and review this Handbook in order to remain informed of rules, regulations, policies and practices therein issued by the faculty, administration and Rowan University Board of Trustees. Click here to access the Rowan Student Handbook.

2. The CGCE Graduate & Post-baccalaureate Policy Guide: CGCE students and especially students at the graduate and post-baccalaureate level should be aware that they may often be required to follow slightly different policies, practices and/or deadlines than those outlined in the Rowan Student Handbook. (Due to accelerated scheduling, this is especially true with CGCE Admissions and registration as well as dropping/adding/withdrawing from classes/programs.) Throughout the Rowan Student Handbook, special notes or alerts will appear to direct students to the CGCE Graduate & Post-Baccalaureate Policy Guide which outlines the CGCE-specific policies. Click the image above to access the CGCE Graduate & Post-Baccalaureate Policy Guide.

Note: Since there are some policies intended only for CGCE students, all CGCE students (including all graduate and post-baccalaureate students) are expected to become familiar with both policy resources listed above. Neither document is intended for those students matriculated in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (GSBS), Rowan’s School of Osteopathic Medication (SOM), or the Cooper Medical School of Rowan University (CMSRU). Students in these schools may follow different policies and should consult their respective Dean’s Offices for details.


The Handbook and the Guide are updated each summer as needed. The University reserves the right to amend, modify or cancel the policies, terms and conditions, course information and other materials as needed. Errors or omissions in either document are subject to the appropriate University policy or legislation, which takes precedence over language of University publications.
