    Your catalog is the official university document that includes all requirements for your degree program(s). Because catalogs change over time, your catalog is set to the year when you first enrolled at Winthrop. Unless you change your "catalog year", you must follow the requirements in the catalog for the academic year you first enrolled at Winthrop. 

    Your faculty advisor may recommend changing your catalog if requirements in a different year's catalog could advance your progress toward degree completion. Students should not change catalogs without consulting with their faculty advisors.

If you are unable to resolve your concern via first contacting your instructor, then you should direct your concern to the Chair of the department in which the course is offered. If you are unable to resolve your concern via contact with the Chair of the department, you may then direct your concern to the Dean of the College housing the department in question. Consider also, in any case, consulting with your academic advisor regarding your concern.
