About the Catalogue

Print vs. Online

The online catalogue is updated as changes are approved. For more information contact the Registrar's Office.

The print version of the catalogue is produced in limited numbers for advising offices and archival purposes.  A PDF will be available for download after April 1, 2009.


The online version of the catalogue (HTML) is updated throughout the year, particularly just prior to and during pre-registration. Use the online catalogue for the most current course descriptions.

The PDF version of the catalogue is a 'snapshot' of the print version of the catalogue. It is provided as a reference and can be treated as if it were a photocopy of the print version of the catalogue.
