The University of Iowa General Catalog

This is the first version of the 2024–25 General Catalog. Please check back regularly for changes. The final edition and the historical PDF will be published during the fall semester.

The General Catalog provides information about academic programs at the University of Iowa, one of three universities governed by the Iowa Board of Regents. The catalog also provides links to supporting offices at the university, a list of administrative officers, an A–Z list of University of Iowa faculty members, a university calendar, and a link to the Code of Iowa for information regarding admission requirements and Iowa resident/nonresident standing.

The General Catalog is published for informational purposes and should not be construed as the basis of a contract between a student and the University of Iowa. Every effort is made to provide information that is accurate at the time of publication. However, information on courses, curricula, policies, regulations, and other matters is subject to change at any time during the period for which the catalog is in effect. The 2024–25 General Catalog overviews requirements for the summer 2024 through spring 2025 academic sessions.
