The university reserves the right to make changes in regulations governing degree programs from time to time. All such changes apply to new and continuing students. However, students continuing in the same program will be phased into the new program regulations without extending the number of full-course equivalents required for their degree. Where a required course for a degree program is no longer offered, the faculty may specify an alternate. Students who interrupt their program by a Fall or Winter term or more will be required to comply with new regulations upon resumption of their studies. Students should annually refer to the Calendar for appropriate faculty regulations governing their degree programs.
