Catalog Expiration Policy:

The privilege of graduating under the requirements of an undergraduate catalog extends no longer than six years from the term of the student's original enrollment.

The requirements outlined in any catalog becomes effective at the beginning of the fall semester of that academic year. Although no student can graduate under requirements outlined in a catalog of more than six years preceding the date of graduation, the student may elect to graduate under a more recent catalog. However, students must complete all the requirements under a single catalog, except for new programs.


While specific requirements for a degree may expire or change, students never "lose" college credits they have earned. They may have to take additional coursework, or fulfill different requirements to obtain a degree under a new/active catalog.
