Welcome to the new USAO Catalog online!

Welcome to the new USAO Catalog online!

We hope you find it useful in every way as you plan your path to graduation and beyond. Our admissions materials may have given you a sense of the unique mission and distinctly different curriculum that makes USAO a nationally recognized model for interdisciplinary learning.  Here in the catalog, you will see this more fully explained.

In the navigation bar at left, choose a link to the information you need: policies, programs offered, or the kinds of help and support you can find in Student Services.  If you’re wondering when classes start next semester, or when the next official holiday is planned (read: “break from classes”), then click on the “Academic Calendar.”

The policies and graduation requirements applicable when you enroll as a first-time student – freshman or transfer – will remain in effect for you until you graduate. You’ll start over under a new catalog after six years or if you leave college and return after one fall or spring term. Remember when you started, because in general that’s the catalog that applies to you. 

If you started at USAO before this new online 2010-12 catalog was launched, here are previous versions in downloadable PDF format: 2008-10, 2006-08, 2004-06.  To find paper copies of any previous catalog, please go to the Registrar’s Office in Troutt Hall 204.

Get enrolled or start your USAO experience in the Office of Admissions, Troutt Hall 225. You will be assigned a faculty advisor who will help guide you through the process toward your degree plan.  If you have suggestions to improve this online catalog, please share them with USAO Media, media@usao.edu.

With warmest regards and best wishes for your success here and well beyond,

Dex Marble
Vice President for Academic Affairs
