University Catalog

Explore the extensive course offerings at Western Colorado University.

The University Catalog contains a summary of campus course and degree offerings, academic policies, degree requirements, course descriptions and faculty listings. Students should refer to the degree, major, minor and certification requirements listed in the catalog that corresponds to the year they formally entered Western. Because the catalog is compiled in advance of the academic year it covers, changes may occur. The provisions of this publication are not to be regarded as an irrevocable contract between the student and Western. The information presented is based on commonly accepted practices at Western, but the University reserves the right to change any provision or requirement at any time within the student’s term of attendance. For up-to-date information, consult academic program advisors and/or Academic Resource Center advisors.

Western honors the program requirements of a given catalog for six years. For questions related to policies, general education requirements, major/minor requirements, and individual course descriptions and requirements or past course catalogs, please contact the Office of the Registrar at registrar@western.edu.
