A degree candidate may opt to fulfill the requirements of any university catalog that came after, not before, the catalog under which he or she originally matriculated. (See also readmission policy, Readmission, Reactivation and degree statute of limitations, Awarding a Credential.)
Catalog Effective Dates
The university catalog is an annual publication effective from the fall semester through the subsequent summer semester. A student is notified of amendments to a degree, major, minor, and concentration requirements, and they are posted as an addendum to the specific year’s catalog on the registrar’s website. A change to a program or policy will be posted as an addendum to the catalog.
