Student Responsibility for Degree Requirements

The University, its colleges, and departments establish certain academic requirements which must be met before a degree is granted.  These requirements concern such things as curricula and courses, majors and minors, and University credit. Advisors, faculty, directors, department heads, and deans are available to help the student understand and arrange to meet these requirements, but the student is responsible for fulfilling them. 

At the end of the student's course of study, if requirements for graduation have not been satisfied, the degree will not be granted.  It is important for each student to be acquainted with their chosen Catalog and to be responsible for completing requirements.  

Content in the Catalog concerning regulations, fees, curricula, or other matters is subject to change without notice.  Courses, programs, and requirements described in the catalog may be suspended, deleted, restricted, supplemented, or changed in any manner at any time at the sole discretion of the University of Arizona and the Arizona Board of Regents.  The catalog does not establish a contractual relationship, but it summarizes the total requirements which the student must presently meet before qualifying for a faculty recommendation to the Arizona Board of Regents to award a degree. For this reason, students must remain currently informed about all policies and other information that bears directly on completing a degree program.

This online Catalog is the official General Catalog of the University of Arizona.  Students may access the Catalog from any computer connected to the Internet.
