|Policy Name: Undergraduate Catalog|
|Policy Number: 519.5|
|Effective Date: June 8, 2010|
The Undergraduate Catalog is an official publication of UALR, revised annually and published in July each year. It provides information about degree programs, course offerings, and academic regulations that affect undergraduate students. There are separate catalogs for UALR’s graduate and law programs.
The catalog establishes the graduation requirements set forth by a specific program of study within each college. Typically, students who enter a program within UALR, follow the program of study listed for the academic year the catalog is published.
Each college within UALR reserves the right to change graduation requirements for their program. Students should meet regularly with their academic advisors to be certain that they are aware of any changes in graduation requirements that may apply to them.
Admission to UALR in any program of study does not guarantee that the university will continue to offer that program of study indefinitely. UALR reserves the right to change, phase out, or discontinue any program at any time for the best interest of the university.
Any listing of courses contained in the UALR website, catalog, or class schedule is only intended to announce available courses and should not be regarded as a guarantee. Keeping within standards set by other universities with the University of Arkansas System, UALR reserves the right to add or delete courses or programs from its offerings, change times, locations, or instructors of courses or programs, modify academic calendars without notice, cancel any course for insufficient student registrations, or revise regulations, charges, fees, schedules, courses, requirements for degrees, and any other policy or regulation affecting students whenever it is considered to be in the best interests of UALR.
The chapter titled “Academics Policies & Requirements” describes the general requirements for both baccalaureate and associate degrees. The baccalaureate degree requires a student to complete a core curriculum consisting of certain required courses, a major field of concentration and, unless otherwise specified by the major, a minor field of concentration. For the associate degree, there is another version of the required core curriculum courses. Other university requirements, including the minimum number of credit hours and a minimum grade point average, are listed under specific programs.
