What is a Bulletin?

The College of Arts and Sciences Bulletin is a resource and roadmap that provides students with the information they need to make the most of their undergraduate education and to graduate from the College in a timely manner with a broad-based liberal arts degree. It is the official source of information regarding degree requirements, rules and regulations, programs of study, courses, and opportunities within and outside of individual departments and programs. Students pursuing degrees in other schools on the Bloomington campus should consult the IU Bloomington Bulletins website to find the appropriate bulletin that covers their degree program. Students will also find much useful information listed on the College website and the websites of individual schools, departments, and programs.  

Which Bulletin Should You Use?

Students follow the requirements included in the Bulletin published in the year they first enrolled (matriculated) as a degree-seeking student at Indiana University Bloomington (IUB). For instance, a new freshman beginning at IUB in the summer or fall of 2017 will be held to the requirements laid out in the 2017-2018 Bulletin of the College of Arts and Sciences. For questions regarding which Bulletin to use, please consult the College Recorder's Office, (812) 855-1821 or coasrecd@indiana.edu. The requirements outlined in the Bulletin in effect at the time of your matriculation at IUB will remain constant throughout your time in the College, assuming you graduate within eight years.
