HOW TO USE THIS BULLETIN _ V
The information in this bulletin is current at the time of publication. lf you are pursuing a degree, you are obligated to fulfill the requirements as they i 
are listed in the bulletin for the semester in which you enroll in that program. .

to fulfill the old requirements and find that necessary courses have been eliminated or substantially revised, you may substitute other courses with the

to the University that the accreditation of a program or certification of its graduates is in jeopardy unless students fulfill the new requirements, the option   ·
of fulfilling the old requirements shall not apply.  
If your study in the program or the University is interrupted for more than two semesters, your college dean will decide which program requirements l
must be fulfilled. g
