The Undergraduate and Graduate Catalogs at the University of Alabama at Birmingham are edited annually. The catalog is open for editing from June 1st and published by April 1st each year. All changes are entered by the office or department responsible and approved through workflow to be published for the next academic year. New courses for existing programs must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate Undergraduate or Graduate Curriculum Committee and should be received in workflow by October 1st. Only newly approved programs, newly approved policy changes and updates due to accreditation, certification and licensure may be eligible to be a part of the addenda section of the catalog. The addenda allows the catalog to be an officially archived document, but retains the flexibility to meet the needs of the University and its students.
