The requirements for a certificate are effective beginning the semester shown for each certificate. Students who began working on the approved certificate before the effective semester may not be affected by the changes because they have catalog rights. Please Note: Catalog Rights are not applicable for degree and certificate programs with a separate selection process (i.e., Nursing, Radiologic Technology, Dental Hygiene). Students will be held to the requirements listed in the major for the year in which they actually enter the program. Students should consult with the program contact person, department chair, or a counselor to determine their eligibility to complete the major under previous requirements.
