Matriculation is the process when a prospective student applies for admission by providing all required documentation; and is officially accepted by the Admissions office.
As long as a student maintains continuous enrollment, the catalog under which they matriculated will apply. If the current course has been eliminated; or if requirements have changed; the administrators will work with the student to rectify all issues. If a student ceases enrollment, that student must meet with an Advisor to process a rematriculation form.
Graduation requirements for a matriculated student are based on the catalog in effect at the time of matriculation or re-matriculation.
