Undergraduate Catalog 2020-2021

The “Grandfather” Clause

Requirements in this Catalog were approved effective fall 2020. The “Grandfather” clause is designed for students who matriculated in a program, major, or curriculum prior to that date. This provides that students may meet degree requirements in effect the year of their matriculation in a particular program, curriculum, or major provided the student has not had an interruption in matriculation exceeding four consecutive fall and spring semesters.

Students changing major or curriculum are subject to the requirements in effect the year of the change.
