This catalog does not establish a contractual relationship. Its purpose is to provide students with information regarding programs, requirements, policies, and procedures to qualify for a degree from Viterbo University. Viterbo University reserves the right, through university policy and procedure, to make necessary changes to curriculum and programs as educational and financial considerations may require. A student follows the catalog in effect at the time of entry and should retain the catalog for the duration of stay provided attendance is uninterrupted and a degree is completed within a period of six years.

There may be changes in university policies unrelated to specific programs which affect the health, safety, and welfare of the Viterbo University community that take effect immediately. Those changes will be reflected in the online catalog.

The university catalog is normally revised every year and changes are announced. When changes occur, either the original or the most recent catalog may be followed.
