Students may elect to complete their work under a more recent catalog than originally assigned, but must comply with all of the new requirements relevant to their program since that time.

Students who extend their study more than eight years from the date of initial admission will be subject to a new Catalog. Upon completion of the eighth catalog year, the student will be assigned to the most recent catalog and an additional eight years to complete their study under this new catalog.
