2017-2018 Academic Catalog

How to Use the Catalog Website


You may click on Schools (in menu at left) to view information about all AUC schools and departments.

For specific degrees offered by AUC, you may click on Programs. This link displays a clickable list of all degrees offered by AUC such as: Bachelors, Masters, Graduate Diplomas, Minors … etc

For information on courses descriptions, you may click on Courses. Just choose the prefix from the window you have on top of the page. You can even go more specific by entering the course prefix and number.

Another useful resource is My Portfolio placed at the end of the menu at left. This feature allows you to record and track your favorite programs, courses, and other areas of the catalog that are of interest to you.  Just click on this link, create an account and start adding pages while browsing the catalog. While you browse programs and courses in the catalog, you will routinely see an “Add to portfolio” link. Clicking on the link will save the item in your portfolio. Items saved in the portfolio will be available for retrieval during subsequent visits to the catalog.

All updates or amendments to the catalog are done through the Provost Office after the consent of the university senate and president.
