When changing an undergraduate major, a graduate program, or a track/concentration, the catalog year will automatically move forward to the current academic year. As such, the student will be required to complete all general education, major, and minor requirements as outlined in that year’s catalog.
If the student prefers to follow the curriculum required in their previous year’s catalog, they should first change their major. Once the changes are made and are reflected in GullNet, they should log back in and change the catalog year to a previous year in which they were enrolled.
Foreign countries may require documents to be certified to be accepted in their country. An "Apostille" certifies the signature and the position of the official who has executed, issued, or certified a copy of a document.
The educational documents usually requested for certification are the diploma, official transcript and/or enrollment/graduation verification letter. The student is responsible for ordering/providing a copy of the document requiring authentication.
Certification should only be done if the organization receiving the document requires you to provide an Apostille. Please check with the country in which you will be working or studying to find out if they will require it.
Visit the Registrar’s webpage for Salisbury University’s Apostille Procedures for additional information.
The Salisbury University Registrar's office attempts to ensure that the information it maintains is accurate and safeguarded from malice and/or fraud.
