Course Catalog

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.
