Finding Your Catalog Year

In order to choose General Studies courses that apply to your degree requirements, you need to know your catalog year. In most cases, that would be determined by the year you began attending classes as a degree seeking student. If you began attending classes in Fall 2011, Spring 2012, or Summer 2012,  for example, that term would be your Catalog Term, and you would have a Catalog Year of 2011-2012. You would have the "old" General Studies requirements.

If you began attending classes in Fall 2012, Spring 2013, or Summer 2013, that would be your Catalog Term and you would have a Catalog Year of 2012-2013. You would have the "new" General Studies requirements.

There are a few situations when your catalog term would be different than the term you began.

  • Students who are not enrolled in classes for three consecutive terms (summer included) have to apply for readmission, and when readmitted have the catalog term for the first term back, not the original catalog term
  • Students may choose a later catalog term than the one they started
  • Very occasionally, a student may choose an earlier catalog term than the one they started if the student was continuously enrolled in a Colorado Community College System (CCCS) institution just prior to beginning at Metro State. See your advisor if you think this applies to you
