A student, who does not graduate with the class with which he or she enters, may meet ECSU requirements for graduation as stated in the university catalog in effect for the year entered, if graduation occurs within six years. Otherwise, the student will be expected to meet the requirements as stated in the ECSU catalog in effect at the time of reentry if he or she returns as a full-time degree student. If he or she returns as a part-time student, the student will be expected to meet the requirements as stated in the ECSU catalog in the year in which work is begun on the final 15 hours. Any matriculating student who begins their enrollment during the summer session will be governed by the ECSU catalog for the forthcoming fall semester.
