Each year ETSU publishes a new university catalog containing graduation requirements in all major and minor programs of study. When students first enter ETSU they are assigned to that year's catalog. Transfer students may use the catalog for the year they began higher education, but all requirements must be completed within six years. Extensions beyond six years may be requested (see advisor for details). To change your catalog year, you need your academic advisor's approval on the Change of Catalog Form (undergraduate form).
