Students may obtain a degree or certification according to the course requirements for a degree or certification stated in the catalog under which they first entered the University, provided the courses are being offered. Or, students may choose to graduate under the course requirements in effect during any subsequent year in which they are registered, provided the courses are offered. A student entering for the first time in the summer session may obtain a degree or certification according to the course requirements of the catalog of the previous long session or the next long session. The above provisions, however, are subject to the restriction that all requirements for a degree or certification must be completed in eight years from the date of the catalog chosen and that the courses are still offered.
A student may graduate under the current catalog. The above provisions are also subject to the University’s authority to modify degree, certification or graduation requirements as necessary.
