Admission Requirements for students whose degree plan/catalog year is 2015-2016, 2016-2017, 2017-2018, and 2018-2019 are to follow the admission requirements for their respective catalog year/degree plan.

Option to Change Current Catalog Year/Degree Plan to the 2019-2020 Catalog Year/Degree Plan:

Students whose catalog year/degree plans are listed as prior to 2019-2020, have the option of changing degree plans to the 2019-2020 degree plan.  If the student chooses to do so, the student must formally change this with a University academic advisor.  The change must be reflected on DegreeWorks by the time the student applies to the program.  If the change is not reflected, the student must follow the admission requirements for the catalog year/degree plan listed on the student’s DegreeWorks.

If the student has formally changed the catalog year/degree plan to 2019-2020 and it is reflected on DegreeWorks, the student will be required to follow the new degree plan which has additional coursework and the required American Sign Language Studies minor.
