Students are not permitted to combine the requirements of two or more catalogs. Students must complete the curriculum requirements as outlined in the catalog that is in effect at the time of their initial enrollment at the university, except for the following reasons:
- Time to degree – Degree requirements remain in effect for six years for students who maintain six years of continuous enrollment from the date of their initial enrollment at the university. Students who do not complete all degree requirements within six years of continuous enrollment will be guided by the catalog in effect when they
apply for graduation. Students who do not maintain continuous enrollment must apply for readmission to the university.
- Readmitted students - Students who are not enrolled for one semester (fall or spring) or more must apply for readmission to the university. If readmitted, students must follow the catalog in effect at the time of their reenrollment. For readmitted students, the time limit for completing all degree requirements will be calculated from the date of their re-enrollment. Readmitted students who are unable to complete their degrees within the time to degree limits must complete the curriculum requirements as outlined in the catalog that is in effect when they apply for graduation.
- Selection of current catalog - Students may choose to be guided by the current catalog in lieu of the catalog under which they were admitted or readmitted. When students choose the current catalog, however, they must meet all of the requirements of that catalog.
This policy applies only to degree program requirements. Students are governed by the academic regulations of the current catalog. Students must become thoroughly familiar with all current regulations of the university. Students are solely responsible for complying with all regulations of the university, of their school or college, and of the departments
from which they take courses. They are also responsible for fulfilling all requirements for their respective degree programs. Requirements are considered complete only when appropriate documentation is recorded in the Registrar's Office.
