Return to: 1100 Graduate Admissions
Students must normally satisfy the curricular degree requirements of the catalog in effect at the time they enter Georgia State University. In some circumstances, revisions may be required to provide more effective programs. The term “curricular degree requirements” refers to the courses and grades required to earn the degree. Changes in academic regulations affect all students, regardless of the catalog edition; examples include the scholastic discipline policy, procedures for removing incomplete grades, and appeals procedures.
Graduate students should consult their college’s chapter of this catalog for information on the instances when a student will be required to change catalog editions.
Students may choose to satisfy the curricular degree requirements of a later catalog, but, if they choose to do this, they must meet all the requirements of the later catalog. Curricular degree requirements of more than one catalog edition cannot be combined. Students who choose to satisfy requirements of a later catalog must notify the Office of Academic Assistance/Office of Graduate Services/Office of Graduate Recruiting & Student Services of their college.
Degrees will be awarded only to students who have satisfied all of the academic and administrative requirements of the university and the college awarding the degree.
