Purpose of the Catalog

The Undergraduate Catalog is the official source of the university’s undergraduate academic programs, courses, policies, and procedures. The catalog should be used as a guide in planning a course of study and in meeting requirements for graduation. See the Table of Contents and Index for an overview of the information provided.

The course offerings and requirements of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, are continually under examination and revision. This catalog is not intended to state contractual terms and should not be regarded as a contract between the student and the institution.

Each semester a Timetable of Classes is available on the web at https://myutk.utk.edu/. The Timetable lists those courses that will be offered during the semester, as well as times and locations. Not all courses listed in this catalog are offered every semester.
