188.8.131.52 Effect of Changes in Program on Graduation
last revised: Aug-2006
The student has the responsibility to know and fulfill all degree/certificate academic requirements and follow graduation procedures. The advisor's role is to assist the student in making decisions.
Students whose enrollment has not been interrupted by three or more years (six successive semesters, excluding summers) should graduate under the program structure listed in the Catalog for the year in which they enter their certificate or degree program. In cases where a current program is changed, the student should work with the appropriate Dean and the Registrar to determine the appropriate coursework required.
Students whose enrollment has been interrupted by three or more years (six successive semesters, excluding summers) are required to follow graduation requirements of the catalog in effect at the time of reentry or any catalog published after reentry.
Because of licensing criteria, legal requirements, or other conditions, graduation from certain programs (including selective admission programs), such as those in the Health Professions Division, may fall under different guidelines as determined by the Registrar in consultation with the appropriate Dean. In such cases, the student must follow the program in existence at the time of admission to or re-entry into the program.
If a student wishes to graduate under program provisions other than those above, the Registrar will review the student's Application for Graduation and will consult with the appropriate Dean regarding clearance for graduation.
