The catalog year is what ties the student to the catalog year curriculum that they are required to follow and determines the contract of degree requirements a student must fulfill in order to graduate.
The catalog year defaults to the same semester that the student matriculated in a degree program.
Students are eligible to change their catalog year if it is to their benefit and approved by their academic advisor and academic dean. Any changes to a student’s catalog year may result in additional, reduced or updated degree requirements.
It is important to note that students must use a single catalog and cannot use a combination of catalogs for graduation.
By changing catalog terms, a student is responsible for fulfilling all of the graduation requirements in their newly chosen catalog year.
Catalog change requests must be submitted by the last day of the prior semester.
