WGU publishes an Institutional Catalog, describing the academic and graduation requirements of each degree program. Students will complete the current version of their selected degree program. WGU updates course and assessment requirements to reflect important developments in field content and related measures of competency. As changes are implemented, WGU will ensure that competency units already earned are applied as applicable, consistent with requirements that may be imposed by states, accreditation agencies, or other external requirements. Students returning from withdrawal from the University are expected to re-enter the updated version of the program (excepting withdrawal due to cohort alignment).
