Catalog Year for Graduation Requirements

An undergraduate matriculated student who has been in continuous enrollment in regular sessions pursuing a degree may elect to meet baccalaureate graduation requirements in effect at any of the three time periods:

  1. at the time of first entering a California community college or CSU campus,
  2. at the time of matriculation at Stanislaus State, or
  3. at the time of graduation.

For the purpose of this regulation, “continuous enrollment” means attendance in at least one semester each calendar year. Attendance in summer or winter term is not applicable to this regulation. An absence for an approved leave, or for attendance  not to exceed two years at another regionally accredited college, may be permitted. Students who do not enroll at least part-time for one semester each calendar year risk the loss of rights to their original catalog year for graduation requirements.

Program admission and completion requirements for a credential or an additional degree or major will be established by the catalog applicable at the time of subsequent program admission. (See Evaluation of Transfer Credit  in this catalog.)
