Catalog Year

Undergraduate Students
An undergraduate student’s catalog year is the academic year when the student is first enrolled in an undergraduate degree program. Catalog year is not affected by a student declaring his/her major or minor.  A re-admitted student is subject to the catalog year requirements based on the semester of his/her re-admission (see Inactivation/Re-admission Policy).

Graduate Students
A graduate student’s catalog year is the academic year when the student is first enrolled after being admitted to a graduate program.  A student’s catalog year is not affected while the student is on an approved leave of absence. A re-admitted student is subject to the catalog year requirements based on the semester of his/her re-admission (see Inactivation/Re-admission Policy).

Change of Catalog Year
An active student may change his/her catalog year to a succeeding catalog if it is to the student’s benefit.  A completed Change of Catalog Year form should be submitted to Enrollment Management Services to update the student’s record.
