Options for Undergraduate Academic Program and General Education - 1D4

Undergraduate students may elect to complete their degree under the requirements that appear in the undergraduate catalog in force at the time of their original matriculation as SIUE degree-seeking students or, subject to the approval of an academic advisor, may elect the requirements that appear in a succeeding catalog(s). This policy is subject to the following provisions and limitations.

  1. No student may graduate under the General Education, major or minor requirements published in a catalog more than seven years old without the written permission of the Dean of the school or college in which the student's major or first minor is housed. The student must also receive permission from the Dean of the college or school in which the student's second major is housed (if applicable). Such written permission shall be submitted to the Office of the Registrar with the application for graduation.

  2. A student may satisfy General Education requirements from one catalog and major or minor requirements from a second catalog, provided that neither catalog exceeds the seven-year limit stated in #1 above.
