Student Policies

1. WELL Core is a graduation requirement, as much as any course required in the BELL Core. Without completing WELL Core, a degree will not be awarded. There are students, a very few, who have to delay graduation for no reason other than outstanding WELL Core requirements. Students in that situation may not walk at commencement. They may attend WELL Core events in subsequent semesters, without paying tuition. They will also have to reapply for graduation, including paying the related fees.

2. It is the responsibility of students to keep track of their own WELL Core credits, and to report any problems to the BELL Core Office within 30 days. Students can check their progress through their WELL Core account.

3. Credit is only given for approved WELL Core events. The WELL Core schedule can be found on BruinLink.Online and live WELL Core events can be found in Blackboard.
