Applicable Catalog Policy – Graduate Students
Students graduate according to requirements published in the University’s Graduate Catalog at the time of their matriculation at St. Catherine University. Students who are away from the University for more than one semester are subject to the academic requirements in effect at the time of re-entry. Students who are in programs that lead to licensure are responsible for meeting current licensure standards. Students who change programs are subject to the academic requirements in effect at the time of entry into the new graduate program.
Matriculated students may petition to satisfy the degree requirements of any subsequent1 catalog in effect during their enrollment as an active student. Petitions require the approval of the student’s program director and academic advisor. Upon approval, the student may not revoke this decision.
Changes in policies or procedures which are only marginally related to degree requirements (such as grading or registration) apply to all enrolled students. Exceptions can only be granted by decision of the appropriate academic officer.
