Drafts of 2015-16 Academic Catalogs Now Online

| April 8, 2015

In order to help students and their advisors plan for Summer and Fall registrations, draft copies of the 2015-16 academic catalogs are now online. After a detailed review of catalog content, which includes review by academic and administrative departments of content for which they are responsible, changes were made (see below) to improve consistency and accuracy. Several new programs were also added.

The academic catalogs will remain as draft versions until June 1, when they officially go into effect. If you discover any errors, please notify DeLyle Bowen in the Office of Academic Affairs at delylebowen08@webster.edu or 314-246-7476.
