The college catalog is a very important document given to you by the University administration. It is the document that sets forth the academic requirements the student has to meet in order to garner a degree in the institution. You are given a catalog dated on the year you enter the university, and it governs your whole academic progress. It is essential to read and understand it, and to keep a copy handy for reference and for your records.
You can also view or download Undergraduate Catalogs from past years in the sidebar or search an online list of course descriptions below.
