Selecting the curriculum guide to follow
Degree requirements are made available on curriculum guides, which are subject to annual updates. Select the curriculum guide to follow using the following criteria:
- Follow the curriculum in place at the time you declared as a Microbiology major, which could be:
- the year you entered NDSU, or
- the year you changed your major to Microbiology, if you had previously declared a different major. Changes in intended degrees, majors, and minors must be declared to become official by providing notice to the Office of Registration and Records.
- Follow any published curricula from the year the you declared as a Microbiology major to the year of graduation.
If you discontinue enrollment for more than one year for any reason, you must follow the curriculum in effect at the time of re-entry.
Example 1: Tom entered NDSU in 2014 and immediately declared as a Microbiology major. He would follow the curriculum from 2014, but he could also decide to follow the curriculum guide from 2015, 2016, or any subsequent year until he graduates.
Example 2: Rahel entered NDSU in 2015 and declared as an English major. She changed her major to Microbiology in 2016. Rahel would follow the curriculum from 2016, but she could also decide to follow the curriculum guide from any subsequent year until she graduates.
Example 3: Fernanda entered NDSU in 2013 and declared as a Microbiology major. She decided to take a year off in 2014 to travel the world. When she returned to the Microbiology program in 2015, she was required to follow the curriculum from 2015. She could also decide to follow the curriculum guide from 2016 or any subsequent year until she graduates.
