University Catalog

The University Catalog is a comprehensive guide for students attending the university.  Students are assumed to be following requirements for the various degrees/majors/minors/core concentrations as are printed in University Catalog for their first enrollment term at the university.

A searchable and printer friendly version of the University Catalog is now available using Adobe Reader. You may obtain the reader by clicking the Adobe icon below.



The online catalog includes the most recent changes to courses and degree requirements that have been approved by the Faculty Senate, including changes that are not yet effective.

CollegeSource® digital catalogs are converted from either the original printed catalog or electronic media supplied by each school. Although every attempt is made to ensure accurate conversion of data, CollegeSource, Inc. and the schools which provide the data do not guarantee that this information is accurate or correct. The information provided should be used only as reference and planning tools. Final decisions should be based and confirmed on data received directly from each school.
