Course Catalog 2014-2016


The new 2014-2016 Course Catalog has arrived! In it, you will find a list of our offered courses and those you need to take to graduate. But the Course Catalog also includes an academic calendar, admissions policies, an estimated cost of attendance and USAO's accreditations. Download it now.

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.

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 and spring term. Remember when you started, because in general that’s the catalog that applies to you. 

If you started at USAO before this 2014-2016 catalog went into effect, the previous two catalogs also can be downloaded: USAO Catalog 2012-14 ; USAO Catalog 2010-12. 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.

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

Dex Marble
Vice President for Academic Affairs
