Undergraduate and Graduate Catalog

The online catalog is for the 2024-2025 academic year since registration for Fall 2024 has begun.  This is subject to change until June 1st.  The printed catalog is for the 2023-2024 since Spring and Summer classes are on-going and the printed catalog section has a link to the previous catalogs.  

The Undergraduate and Graduate Catalog is a comprehensive listing of current information regarding:

  • Degree Requirements
  • Course Offerings
  • Undergraduate and Graduate Rules and Regulations

Students should keep the catalog of the year they first enrolled for referral throughout their academic career.  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.
