Undergraduate Catalog 2005- 2006

Catalog Rights Statement

The Need for Regulations

The university is committed to the ideal of flexibility and diversity in the educational experience. Certain regulatory procedures are necessary, however, to ensure that the complex needs of a large student body in search of diverse educational goals are met efficiently and smoothly. Students are advised to familiarize themselves with the following details in order to avoid any difficulties along their chosen path to the baccalaureate degree.

Catalog Rights Statement

The 2005-06 undergraduate catalog is in effect for the fall 2005, spring 2006, and summer 2006 semesters.

University Requirements

Students continuously enrolled at UB or on an official Leave of Absence from UB are governed by the university requirements (e.g., writing skills, general education) stated in the catalog in effect at the time of their initial matriculation in the university. For example, students who enter the university in Fall 2005 and are continuously enrolled through graduation must meet the baccalaureate degree requirements as stated in this 2005-2006 catalog.

Major Program Requirements

Students continuously enrolled in a particular major degree program or on an official Leave of Absence from the program are governed by the requirements of that program as stated in the catalog in effect at the time of their initial entrance into the program. For example, students who are accepted into a major during the Fall 2005 semester and are continuously enrolled through graduation must meet the requirements for the major as stated in this 2005-2006 catalog.

Either the university or a program may find it necessary to update requirements for students who have been enrolled in the university or in a program for an extended period.

Breaks in Student Enrollment

Students who leave the university or a major degree program for one or more semesters without an official Leave of Absence are governed by the requirements stated in the catalog in effect at the time of their most recent readmission to the university or to the major program. Students who entered UB as freshmen and who leave the university and return with transfer work will not be considered transfer students for purposes of university requirements (e.g., writing skills, general education).
