Welcome to the Graduate Catalog

The University of Texas at Arlington Online Graduate Catalog is the official version of our catalog, and takes precedence over any printed version of the catalog. This catalog was first published in July of 2010, and it supercedes the 2009-2010 Graduate 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 our Graduation Requirements and Procedures for more information.

This catalog is a general information electronic publication only. It 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 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, calendars, 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 students from whatever penalties they may incur.

Many departments and programs issue program manuals, procedures and policy manuals, graduate student handbooks and other informational publications for students and faculty in graduate programs. These publications provide detailed and useful information; however, they are not statements of official policy 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 Graduate Catalog of The University of Texas at Arlington shall supersede departmental, program or college publications.

Many of our previous catalogs are still available online. Catalogs that are no longer online are still available through the University Archives. Please contact the University Archivist for more information.
