In addition to the Charter and Bylaws, the organization chart, the Constitution of the Faculty of Furman University, the Faculty Handbook, and the University Policies and Procedures Manual, the annual catalogs serve as official sources of information about the organization and functioning of the University.
The Furman University Catalog and a companion piece, the First Year Seminar Guide; the Furman University Graduate Studies in Education Catalog; and the Furman University Continuing Education Catalog are the official catalogs of the University. These catalogs are the primary sources of academic regulations for students in their respective programs.
1. The Furman University Catalog is the most comprehensive source of information about the University, its educational offerings, its staff, and its organization. It is edited by a designated member of the staff under the guidance of an administrative committee with input from the Provost, the Vice Presidents, the Dean of the Faculty, the department chairs, and the directors of individual programs. Academic Records is responsible for final preparation of the manuscript, design, printing, and distribution. Academic Records also manages the Catalog printing budget.
2. Graduate Studies and Continuing Education are responsible for the preparation, design, printing, and distribution of the catalogs serving their degree programs.
3. Course listings in the Furman University Catalog and First Year Seminar Guide will be periodically reviewed by the individual academic departments, programs and concentrations, the First Year Seminar Oversight Committee, the Curriculum Committee, and the Academic Policies Committee. Amendments to the course listings in either document can be made according to the Curriculum Committee Operating Procedures, File 190.1.
4. A fully-searchable version of the Furman University Catalog is published on the Furman website for each upcoming academic year. Print versions are distributed to all faculty, non-faculty advisors, new students, and all University offices, prior to the beginning of the academic year.
5. A limited number of additional print copies are available by request through the office of Academic Records.
