University Catalogs

The catalog of the University is the document of authority for all students. Any academic unit may issue additional or more specific information that is consistent with approved policy. The information in the catalog supersedes that issued by any other unit if there is a conflict between the two. The University reserves the right to change the requirements given in the catalog at any time. See General Information, The University for more information.

For help with catalog terminology, see the Glossary of Catalog Terminology for more information.

Course descriptions in University catalogs are correct at the time of publication. See the Course Schedule for more recent information about courses.
