University Catalog

The University Catalog provides students with an array of information that can be categorized into three sections. The first section contains information about the university, admission requirements, as well as university's policies and regulations. The second section contains information pertaining to the degrees offered by the university, such as requirements to earn a bachelor's degree. In the third section, the Catalog contains a listing of Departments and Colleges. In this section, you'll find descriptions of both programs and courses offered by each department.

It should be noted that the University Catalog is organized according to academic year. In general, undergraduate students follow the curriculum that corresponds to the academic year when one's major was declared. If you do not know or are unsure of which academic year you should follow, please make an appointment with an AARC Advisor.
