All students are responsible to complete the requirements for their major, minor, and degree that were in place upon their admittance to the College as a matriculated (degree-seeking) student - this is considered the student’s catalog year. (Note: If a student is readmitted to the College following a withdrawal or dismissal, he or she is responsible to complete the requirements in place on the new matriculation date.)
If circumstances warrant, students (with approval from their department chairperson) may petition the dean of their school to change their catalog year for their major and/or minor.
Students may also petition to substitute or waive specific major or minor requirements. Those substitutions or waivers must be approved by the department chairperson and the dean of the student’s school.
Undergraduate students who wish to substitute or waive General Education program requirements must petition the Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs. All waivers or substitutions must be properly documented with the Registrar.
Students who change concentrations or programs will be responsible to complete the requirements in place upon their acceptance into the new concentration or program. If a student is readmitted to the College following withdrawal or dismissal, he or she is responsible to complete the requirements in place on the new matriculated date.
In certain circumstances, the College may approve changes to requirements that some or all students must fulfill, regardless of their date of entry. If such a case occurs, affected students will be notified.
