2020-2021 Undergraduate Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]
2020-2021 Undergraduate Catalog
The online catalog management system (AcalogTM) provides both current and prospective members of the campus community with detailed information about Oakland University’s academic programs as well as a host of welcomed advantages. These virtual, fully interactive program guides offer greater accessibility, increased functionality and added convenience to anyone interested in quickly finding the academic program information they need.
The online catalog provides students with the most up-to-date information on their academic programs and offers advisers and faculty a number of tools to support their work with student and program planning. Visitors to this site can also take advantage of the “My Portfolio”. With this function, students have the ability to identify departments, programs, and courses they have interest in and store for viewing later. Note: please speak with an adviser to ensure your information is relevant to your catalog year.
All data in this catalog reflect information as it was available at the publication date.
