About the Student Handbook

The Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering Student Handbook presents essential information about the college: the character and mission of the school, the academic policies and opportunities to learn outside of the formal classroom, the college’s Honor Code, the campus and community setting, and other policies.

This book should also enable prospective students to decide whether or not Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering is the college for them and whether they might benefit from its offerings.

This Handbook does not constitute a contract between the college and its students.

Students, faculty and staff that have suggestions for edits or changes in the Handbook, or those that are interested in the history of the Handbook or its policies, should contact the Office of Student Affairs and Resources: student.affairs@olin.edu
