2012-13 Undergraduate Catalog
Welcome to the University of Arkansas
This catalog of studies is a comprehensive reference for your years of study – a list of degrees and courses offered at the University of Arkansas. In addition, it gives you valuable information such as suggested and required degree plans and information about costs, scholarships and financial assistance, and campus resources. Read it with pleasure and with care.
Take every opportunity to consult your academic adviser to ensure that you are taking advantage of courses and University resources that will help you reach your educational and career goals and graduate on time. If you are not sure where to find your academic adviser, contact the dean’s office of your college; the phone numbers are listed under Important Numbers. If your major is “undecided,” contact the advising office in the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences at 479-575-3307. Otherwise, call the dean’s office in the college or school of your interest.
Remember, the University of Arkansas is committed to your success. The faculty and staff are here to support you as you work to achieve your goals. Ask for help and advice whenever you need it.

Because the faculty of each college reserves the right to change graduation requirements, students should meet with their college advisers regularly to be certain that they are aware of any changes in graduation requirements that may apply to them.
