Notice

Information in this catalog is subject to change and does not constitute a contract or warranty that the university will continue indefinitely to offer the program in which a student is enrolled. The university expressly reserves the right to change, phase out, or discontinue any policy or program. Such changes take precedence over catalog statements.

This catalog is for the 2016-2017 academic year. Students should keep the catalog for referral throughout their academic career. Students who first enroll at Governors State University during the 2016-2017 academic year must fulfill the requirements stated in this catalog and its updates, as applicable, or they may elect to substitute the requirements in any subsequent catalog published while they are enrolled in the university. A student must, however, meet the requirements from one catalog only, rather than choosing a portion from one catalog and the remainder from another.

The catalog is posted on the GSU website at www.govst.edu/catalog.
