Catalog Term

The student's initial term of entry is identified as the student's "catalog term." Catalog term rights include the following:

  • A student shall be entitled to follow Colonnade and major/minor degree requirements contained in the current catalog when first enrolled at WKU as a degree-seeking student. This does not preclude the addition of requirements arising from action of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
  • A student will be allowed seven consecutive years from his/her catalog term to complete degree requirements. The college dean may grant an extension to this deadline.
  • A student who stops out and re-enrolls after an absence of seven consecutive years or more will be assigned the catalog term of the readmission term.
  • A student's catalog term will be changed to a more recent term if the student, in consultation with the advisor and with the approval by the department head, agrees to follow more recent degree requirements.
  • Academic departments reserve the right to authorize appropriate course substitutions for earlier versions of major/minor requirements in which required courses have been discontinued.
