Effective Catalog Requirements
Students are responsible for the information the catalog contains and are therefore encouraged to reference it often. Procedures, course titles and regulations may change, but decisions regarding individual programs, permanent records and transcripts are based on the year of the student's initial enrollment. The catalog will be invaluable in the years to come, particularly if a student transfers to another college.
Students may follow the requirements of one catalog only. Students completing program requirements in four or fewer years may follow either the catalog requirements in effect at the time of their initial enrollment or the requirements of any succeeding catalog in effect during their period of enrollment.
Students who take longer than four years to complete program requirements at Normandale may follow any catalog in effect during the four-year period immediately preceding their date of graduation, provided the desired program is still being offered or was declared during the time it was still being offered. Requirements for this catalog take effect Fall 2019.
Declaring A Major or Program
It is important that students keep their program of study current at all times to ensure the student is completing the correct courses, financial aid is properly awarded, VA benefits are granted, and the degree is still available when the student is ready to graduate. Students can declare or change their program of study by submitting the Change of Major form, available at www.normandale.edu/records.
