Catalog Applicability

DEGREE/MAJOR

A student may complete the requirements for the initial degree under the provisions of any valid UofM Catalog provided the effective date of that Catalog is not earlier than the student’s initial admission to UofM or some other accredited institution of higher learning. The degree requirements published in the Undergraduate Catalog of the University of Memphis are valid for seven years from the beginning of the academic year to which the Catalog applies. For students whose initial enrollment occurs Fall 2016-Summer 2017, this Catalog is valid through Summer 2023.

With the approval of the dean of the college through which the student’s degree is offered, any student who had completed at least fifteen semester hours of course work and whose progress was interrupted by a call to active military duty may extend the validity date for graduation for any Catalog valid at the time of the call to active duty. Though the student should attempt to complete requirements within the normal seven-year validity period, the dean may grant an extension commensurate with actual time served on active military duty and time required for directly related medical treatment that prevents the student’s re-enrollment. Qualification for this extension is contingent upon re-enrollment within a period of time deemed reasonable by the dean. The extension is not allowed for a full military career.

The seven-year Catalog validity period applies only to degree requirements as specified in Graduation from the University and Colleges, Degree Programs and Courses sections of the Catalog. It does not apply to regulations in the Academic Regulations section. Specific regulations apply for the year in which they appear in the Catalog.

MINOR

A student with a declared major may pursue any established minor described in this or any subsequent Catalog. The selected minor must be different than the declared major and require approval of the degree granting college under which the student is graduating. The minimum of 18 credit hours for a minor is required. Some of the hours in the minor may also be included in the student's general education and degree requirements. There must be at least 9 hours at the upper division level. The GPA required for the minor is that of the degree granting college. Students must complete the coursework for the minor as described in the “College and Degree Programs” section of the undergraduate Catalog. The minor must be declared no later than graduation check-out time. All course requirements for the minor must be completed by the time of graduation.
