Academic Catalog

The Academic Catalog includes a list of all degree requirements for each major plus all other academic rules and regulations the student must follow to earn a degree.

Students may choose to follow the edition of the Catalog in effect when they first matriculate or any edition published after their matriculation. They may not choose an earlier edition of the catalog. One exception is specified by the Seven-Year Catalog Policy. This states that the Catalog used to determine graduation requirements may not be older than seven years at the time of the student’s graduation. Students may follow different catalogs for their major requirements and their minor requirements.

Readmitted students receive a memo from the Undergraduate Studies Office (and their advisors receive a copy) telling them the oldest Catalog they may use for graduation purposes. This will be the Catalog of original admission if that will be less than seven years old at the time the degree will be completed (unless the student is a teacher certification candidate—teacher certification candidates who readmit must use the newest catalog at the time of readmission).
