Catalog Year

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.
