About the University Catalog

The University of Texas at Arlington Online University Catalog is the official catalog of the University and takes precedence over any previously printed or online catalog. This version of the catalog was published in June of 2017 and supersedes the previously published  2016-2017 catalog. Students are governed by the catalog under which they were enrolled or, at a student’s option, the catalog of any subsequent year in which that student was in residence. Please refer to the academic requirements and procedures sections for more information.

The University Catalog is a general information publication only. The University Catalog is not intended to nor does it contain all regulations that relate to students. The provisions of this catalog do not constitute a contract, express, or implied, between any applicant, student or faculty/staff member and The University of Texas at Arlington or The University of Texas System. The University reserves the right to withdraw courses at any time, change fees, rules, calendar, curriculum, degree programs, degree requirements, graduation procedures and any other requirements affecting students. Changes will become effective whenever the proper authorities so determine and will apply to both prospective students and those already enrolled.

Students are held individually responsible for complying with all requirements of the rules and regulations of the University and the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System. Failure to read and comply with policies, regulations and procedures will not exempt a student from being governed by and accountable to them. Many departments and programs issue program manuals, procedures and policy manuals, student handbooks and other informational publications for students and faculty in its programs. These publications provide detailed and useful information; however, they are not statements of official policy or binding contracts of The University of Texas at Arlington or of The University of Texas System. In all matters, the Rules and Regulations of the Board of Regents of The University of Texas System, the Handbook of Operating Procedures of The University of Texas at Arlington, and the University Catalog of The University of Texas at Arlington shall supersede departmental, program or college publications.
