As of the 2010-2011 academic year, UCSB no longer offers a printed version of the General Catalog.  Those familiar with the printed format will see that much of the content and organization is the same.  However, the online format offers a few advantages:

  1. Accessibility - The General Catalog is now available wherever there is an internet connection.  No need to order and pay for a printed copy.
  2. Search-ability - Finding content within the catalog is easier than ever with a variety of search and browsing options.  To learn more about these, click "Navigating the Online Catalog" below.
  3. Environmental Responsibility - The General Catalog contains nearly 500 printed pages of content, which means that not printing it saves hundreds of thousands of pieces of paper each year.  Users who still prefer to have paper copies of certain pages can use the "Print-Friendly" button at the top of any page to print only the content they need.

Browse this section to learn more about how to navigate and interpret the General Catalog.  We are always looking to improve functionality, so if you have any comments or suggestions, please use the "Feedback" button at the top of any page to let us know.
