Welcome to the UTHSC Academic Bulletin and CenterScope (Student Handbook)

UTHSC Bulletin - The bulletin serves as the official document summarizing all of the educational programs offered at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC).  The information provided in the bulletin is not to be construed as a contract; this institution reserves the right to change fees, tuition or other charges, course offerings or program requirements as deemed necessary and appropriate.  This bulletin provides information related to each of the six colleges within the UTHSC, summarizing their mission and organizational structure, degrees offered, academic calendars, admissions processes, policies and procedures governing each academic program, degree and graduation requirements and course descriptions.  In addition, institution-wide policies and procedures and resources of particular interest to students studying in geographic locations other than Memphis is provided.

CenterScope - The official student handbook for the institution, CenterScope, provides important information on student government, academic and student support services, technology support services, available health services, financial aid, emergency procedures, institution- wide policies and procedures of particular relevance for students, rights and responsibilities of students, the Student Code of Conduct, the judicial system governing student actions, and a summary of a variety of organizations and opportunities for students.

The UTHSC Bulletin and CenterScope are reviewed, revised and published once a year (on or before July 1st).  Students are strongly encouraged to review the information provided in these publications upon acceptance into one of the UTHSC programs. Students follow the requirements published in the Bulletin at the point of matriculation into the program unless otherwise notified.  The University reserves the right to make necessary changes to the provisions and policies of this bulletin as deemed necessary and appropriate.
