The General Catalog includes degree requirements for all colleges, departments, and schools at the University of Iowa. Major, minor, and certificate requirements are listed in the Catalog.

Although every effort is made to keep this information current, there are delays in updating due to the editing and approval process. Each page of the Catalog is dated to detail when it was last amended.


For historical and legal purposes, the Office of the Registrar retains a copy of each University of Iowa General Catalog. Changes made after the original publication date are not reflected in these documents. You may view General Catalogs beginning with the 2012-2013 edition by using the drop-down box below. You will need Adobe Acrobat Viewer to view PDF documents.

General Catalogs beginning with the 1970-1972 edition can be viewed online and downloaded by visiting the Iowa Research Online website.  Earlier versions of the General Catalog are archived at the University of Iowa Main Library.

If you don't find the document you're looking for please contact the Office of the Registrar and someone will provide that data to you.
