Catalog Year

Undergraduate Students

The catalog year is given to a student when a student enters or matriculates into a degree program. The catalog year defines the program requirements to obtain a bachelor of fine arts degree from CCS. Students are obligated to follow the policies and procedures in the catalog year when they have matriculated.

The catalog year is located on the upper left hand side of the academic evaluation (also known as degree audit). On the academic evaluation, students will see the word Catalog with a year following. This is the academic program of study for a student’s tenure at CCS and the catalog year coincides with the appropriate curriculum chart. If students are unsure of their catalog year, they may contact their academic advisor.

If a student changes to a new major, the catalog year is updated to the current catalog year or curriculum. Students may update their catalog year if they opt to follow requirements to an updated academic program in their department. Students may update the catalog year by using the Change of Major form available in the Academic Advising and Registration Office. Catalog years are not retroactive. This means a student on a current catalog year would not be allowed to follow a past catalog year. If a student wishes to change their concentration with their major, he or she will remain on the same catalog year for the major.

If a student leaves the college for more than two years (four semesters) he/she is required to reapply to the College for Creative Studies. His/her catalog year would change upon readmission to the new date of entry and they would be obligated to complete the requirements of the most recent Catalog.

If students are still unsure of their catalog year, they may contact their academic advisor.
