The online catalog management system—acalog™—contains a number of features to assist you, including advanced search options, intuitive navigation and a personal portfolio to store favorite programs and courses. This online catalog is a powerful tool to help you quickly locate undergraduate and graduate programs and courses whether you are a prospective student or already enrolled at Western Michigan University. Not all courses listed in this catalog are offered every semester. It is important to visit your academic advisor on a regular basis to stay on track to graduate.

Purpose of the catalog

The WMU catalogs are the official source of the university’s academic programs, courses, policies and procedures. The catalog should be used as a guide—in conjunction with your academic advisor—in planning a course of study and in meeting requirements for graduation.
