When Major Requirements Change

When major requirements are changed, continuing students have the option of fulfilling the new requirements or fulfilling those specified in the Undergraduate Bulletin and supplements to the Undergraduate Bulletin current at the time they completed 45 credits. Students who have completed fewer than 45 credits when the revisions are first published must satisfy the new requirements, unless the major department specifies otherwise.

Transfer students who entered Stony Brook with 45 or more transfer credits have the option of fulfilling the new requirements or fulfilling the requirements specified in the Undergraduate Bulletin and supplements to the Under­graduate Bulletin in effect when they matriculated.

Where course offerings have changed so that the required courses that would apply to particular students are no longer in the curriculum, the department will designate comparable alternatives to enable such students to complete the major without delaying their graduation.
