Student Handbook

The Quality Leadership University/Towson Student Handbook (PDF) is a comprehensive guide to the policies and procedures of the Quality Leadership University/Towson business administration program. This handbook offers complete information on the academic program, how to use the various tools in Online Services and Blackboard and all policies and procedures of Towson University.

TU Email Account

All students in the program are assigned a TU email account and all correspondence will be through this account.


Blackboard is an educational platform for courses that allows students to access the course syllabus, view, complete and post assignments, work on documents with team members and post to the professor, view grades, see the class roster, engage in discussion boards and see faculty and student contact information.

Code of Conduct

The Code of Conduct (PDF) represents the culture of the College of Business and Economics. It is incumbent on every student, faculty, and staff member of the college to assure that it is upheld with pride and reinforced on a daily basis.

Online Services

Online Services allows students to register for courses, access their unofficial transcript, view their transfer evaluation, review final grades and monitor progress towards completion of the program. The latter is achieved by viewing the Degree Progress Report, which shows the classes a student has previously taken (in all universities and/or colleges), the classes in which they are currently enrolled and the classes they need to take to complete their degree.

Undergraduate Catalog

The Undergraduate Catalog is a document that describes the requirements to pursue an undergraduate degree each academic year.
