Determining which major/minor checklist version to use
From the Cornell Catalogue, “Declaration of Degree Candidacy, Majors, and Minors” section:
“Students are expected to complete the major and minor requirements that were in effect at the time of Spring registration for their second year of courses. Transfer students who are admitted with sophomore or higher standing satisfy the requirements in effect when they begin their first course at Cornell. Students who have withdrawn from Cornell and are later readmitted follow the requirements in effect at the time of their readmission. Exceptions may be made by the department concerned in response to the student's petition, provided that such changes are feasible for and agreeable to the department.”
