Change of Catalog Year Web Form


The catalog year (requirement term) is what determines the set of requirements to display in the student's degree audit. Curriculum can change year-to-year, and the requirement term is what ties the student to the catalog year curriculum that they are supposed to follow. Generally, this value defaults to the semester that the student entered the University, however, students are eligible for more recent catalog years if it's to their benefit and approved by their college. Students are not permitted to move to a catalog year prior to their matriculation at the University (or prior to the term of readmission, for readmitted students).

The Change of Catalog Year Form is an advisor-initiated form used to change a student's Catalog Year (requirement term). The form is for Undergraduate use only.  It is accessible through the Advisor Center in UDSIS or via the link below.
