Graduation Under a Particular Catalog

Students are designated a catalog that includes the academic requirements that they must meet to graduate with a degree from UNT Dallas.  These requirements are important for students to understand to make progress to degree.  Rules regulating the catalog assigned to students are as follows:

  1. A student may meet the graduation requirements noted in the catalog in effect at the time of admission to UNT Dallas or the requirements in any later catalog published before the student’s graduation.
  2. Any student transferring directly from a Texas community college to UNT Dallas shall have the same choice of catalog published degree requirements as the student would have if the dates of attendance at the university had been the same as the dates of attendance at the community college.  Transfer students from senior institutions or out-of-state community colleges will use the catalog in effect at their date of enrollment at UNT Dallas.
  3. All requirements of the chosen catalog must be met within eight years of that catalog’s publication.  This catalog will expire at the close of the 2029 Summer semester/term.  Any student who does not attend UNT Dallas for one full academic year must meet the requirements of the catalog effective the semester of the student’s return.
  4. Changes in either major or non-major requirements made necessary by altered or discontinued courses or by requirements imposed by external accrediting or certification agencies become effective for degree audit purposes at the beginning of the academic year immediately following the academic year in which the changes are published in the university catalog.  The changes may include additions, deletions and other changes in prerequisite requirements for existing courses.  Whenever possible, new requirements are implemented with a beginning class or upon the expiration of the appropriate time limit.

If a change in the academic catalog is necessary, speak with your academic advisor for more information.
