Welcome to the online catalog which is the most current version of the Governors State University catalog. It is updated each term to provide the most current catalog information.

Use the navigation pages on the left hand side of this page to explore degree offerings. For example, if you click on the "Academic Degree Programs Offered" page you will find a complete list of all degrees listed by degree level. Clicking on the Program name will take you to a page which provides details for the program, including links to all courses, their descriptions, and course prerequisites.  By clicking on the pages for each college you will find details about the college, their faculty members, and be able to access program details offered through each college.

The "MyCatalog" feature within the online catalog lets you store information for quick reference later. You can set up this feature by creating an account. You do not need to be a GSU student and/or use a GSU email account to use this feature. As you browse through the catalog pages, whether it's a course, program, division, navigation link, or search that you want to save, just click on the star icon found on the page. Clicking on the star will save that item to your MyCatalog page. You can also send a request to be contacted by an academic advisor when you set up this feature. 

Please meet with your advisor to be sure you are storing information relevant to your catalog year. All students admitted to a program are required to have a study plan signed by the Program Advisor.
