Traditional Academic Catalog 2023-2024


This catalog does not constitute a contract between Mount Vernon Nazarene University and its students. Among other elements, it is intended to represent current academic regulations, procedures, and programs. Schools and/or departments may have student handbooks/guides, which contain additional details. Adult learners can reference the Graduate and Professional Studies Catalog. Schools and/or departments may set standards that are higher than University standards, but they may not lower them.

The University reserves the right to change any provision, program, policy, regulation, or requirement in this catalog or any handbook/guide at any time, without prior notice or obligation. If there is a conflict between the Catalog and any handbook/guide, the Catalog will take precedence.

Students should familiarize themselves with all of the academic requirements related to their particular program. While advisors, department chairs, and deans are available to assist students in understanding these requirements, students are responsible for completing all academic requirements before a degree can be conferred.

Admission to and retention by the University are not guaranteed and are solely within the discretion of the University. Attendance at MVNU is a privilege and not a right. This privilege may be forfeited by any student who does not conform to the standards and regulations of the University.

The information provided in this Catalog is effective 7/1/2023 - 6/30/2024
