2017-2018 Graduate Catalog



The Graduate catalog contains important information for your academic experience at the University.  The navigation bar along the right side of the page will help guide you to specific policies, curricula, and course descriptions.  The search feature will match your criteria by reviewing the entire publication! 

If you are looking for the Undergraduate catalog, please use the drop-down menu above.  Previous versions of the Graduate and Undergraduate catalogs can be found by selecting the “archived catalogs” link to the right.

The rules, regulations, policies, fees and other charges, courses of study, and academic requirements that appear in this Graduate Catalog were in effect at the time of its publication. Like everything else in this Graduate Catalog, they are published for informational purposes only, and they do not constitute a contract between the University and any student, applicant for admission or other person.

Whether noted elsewhere in this Graduate Catalog or not, the University reserves the right to change, eliminate, and add to any existing (and to introduce additional) rules, regulations, policies, fees and other charges, courses of study and academic requirements. Whenever it does so, the University will give as much advance notice as it considers feasible or appropriate, but it reserves the right in all cases to do so without notice.
