Catalog Year Policy

Approved by the Provost to be effective February 5, 2018; revised and approved by the Provost to be effective April 30, 2021.

The Academic Catalog is the publication that documents all academic policies, regulations, and program requirements for a given academic year for all Undergraduate and Graduate students and programs.

A student's catalog year identifies the particular set of curriculum requirements and regulations, including general education and university requirements, in effect for program completion. The catalog year is established for the individual student upon declaration or change of the program.

A student may change a catalog year without a change of program or minor only to a more recent catalog. The student may request this change formally through their department.

Any student who has been inactivated must reapply for admission to the university.  If admitted, the student will be assigned to the catalog requirements for the program in effect for the re-admit term.
