CADP Policies & Procedures

University Policies

CADP students are expected to adhere to the same Rowan University policies as all other students. As such, all CADP students are expected to:

  • Abide by the Student Code of Conduct.
    • Disciplinary or academic sanctions may extend a student’s graduation timeline.
  • Check their official Rowan email account frequently.
  • Review and understand Rowan University’s NJ Residency for Tuition Purposes
  • Acknowledge the tuition and fees generated by their registration, and pay in full by the deadline for each term.
  • Apply to graduate by the appropriate deadline, based on expected graduation term.

In addition, all students in a CADP are expected to adhere to the CADP-specific policies and procedures as outlined below:

CADP Level Matriculation

  • Students must complete, and their advisor must submit to the Office of the University Registrar, a CADP Student Agreement and Confirmation Form in order to be officially matriculated into and properly coded for a CADP.
  • A student may not enter a CADP through a “Change of Major” form/request.
  • Admission to the undergraduate portion of a CADP does not necessarily guarantee admission to the graduate program.
  • Students must complete all requirements of their undergraduate program before they can be admitted to the graduate portion of their program.
  • In order to move to the graduate portion of the CADP, students must work with their advisors to complete and submit to the Office of the University Registrar, a CADP Transition and Transfer Request Form once all undergraduate program requirements have been met.
    • By signing this form, the student accepts the offer of graduate admission to the CADP, if approved by all required advisors.

Advising & Registration

  • CADP students are expected to meet with their CADP advisor(s) at least once per semester to ensure adherence to appropriate course/program sequences.
    • Students in double-discipline CADPs should meet with advisors for both disciplines throughout the course of their program.
  • Students may self-register for undergraduate courses online, via Self-Service Banner.
  • During the senior year, CADP students should work with their advisor(s) to choose appropriate graduate-level coursework.
  • Students will not able to be self-register for graduate-level coursework and must be manually registered by the Office of the University Registrar, per advisor’s request.
  • After undergraduate program completion and matriculation into the graduate portion of the CADP, students may self-register for graduate courses online, via Self-Service Banner.
  • Students are expected to make all registration changes (adds/drops/withdrawals) each term following the appropriate deadlines, as determined by the part of terms for their courses, or they will be responsible for the charges incurred.

Billing, Financial Aid, & Grants

  • All CADP students will be billed based on the tuition rates as determined by their specific CADP coding. Refer to CADP Program Guide for specifics.
  • CADP students should complete the undergraduate FAFSA until formally admitted to the graduate portion of their program. At that point, students should submit the FAFSA for the graduate level.
  • CADP students must abide by all institutional, state, and federal financial aid requirements and deadlines.
  • Students can only receive undergraduate aid when enrolled as an undergraduate student – aid options will likely change when a student is admitted to the graduate program.
  • Be advised that federal regulations prohibit Title IV financial aid for certain programs (see rowanu.com/graduate/aid).
  • Students in education CADPs will not be considered education majors until they are active in the graduate major – this may impact financial aid and grants.

Graduate Credit Transfer

  • Students in a CADP may take up to 12 graduate credits (or otherwise, as determined by their specific CADP agreement) while still in the undergraduate portion of their program, and count those credits toward both their undergraduate and graduate programs.
  • CADP students must earn at least a “B” grade in the graduate courses completed as an undergraduate in order for the courses to transfer to the graduate program and record.
  • The graduate credits completed as an undergraduate student will transfer to the graduate program, but the grades will not. Only the graduate courses completed while enrolled as a graduate student will count toward the graduate GPA.

Degree Conferral

  • Unless otherwise directed, students should apply for graduation for the term in which they expect to complete all requirements for the entire CADP – both undergraduate and
  • Unless otherwise directed by the CADP agreement, the undergraduate degree and graduate degree will be awarded simultaneously, at the end of the graduate program.
  • Participating in the annual Commencement Ceremony is optional: students may choose to participate when they complete their undergraduate requirements, when they finish their graduate program, and may participate in one, both, or neither ceremony.
    • Participating in the Commencement Ceremony does not mean that a student has graduated; in order to graduate, a student must fill out the graduation application by the deadline and be approved by their advisor(s).
  • Failure to submit the graduation application by the deadline may delay the student’s graduation until the next term.

Non-Completion/Non-Compliance

  • A CADP student who no longer wishes to complete a CADP must inform their advisor(s) immediately to request that the University Registrar update the student’s record to reflect a traditional, undergraduate program.
  • If a CADP student is not admitted to the graduate portion of their CADP for any reason, the student should work with their advisor(s) to develop a plan of action and request that the University Registrar update the student’s record to reflect an appropriate non-CADP program.
  • Any CADP student that fails to comply with both the academic and administrative requirements for their specific CADP and/or fails to meet any/all requirements within the specified timeframes, may not be able to start and/or continue in their selected CADP.
