Graduation → Degree Criteria for Year of Admission

Catalog year determines the set of academic requirements that must be fulfilled for graduation. Students graduate under the catalog in effect when they first enroll as degree-seeking students at UF provided they maintain continuous enrollment. Students who are unregistered for 2 or more consecutive terms must reapply for admission and will be assigned the catalog in effect when enrollment is resumed. With the approval of their college dean’s office, students may opt to graduate under the requirements of a later catalog, but they must fulfill all graduation requirements from that alternative year. The University will make every reasonable effort to honor the curriculum requirements appropriate to each student’s catalog year. However, courses and programs are sometimes discontinued and requirements may change as a result of curricular review or actions by accrediting associations and other agencies.
