The Catalog

The university’s catalog is the document of authority for all students. It contains detailed information that will help students succeed in their degree and certificate programs, have a positive university experience, and graduate in a timely manner. The catalog contains information on domestic and international admissions; tuition and fees; degree requirements for every program; general education requirements; university-wide graduation requirements; academic opportunities; support services; enrichment opportunities; university policies and procedures; and faculty and administration. It also contains a brief description of each of the courses offered by the university. Students are strongly urged to read the catalog carefully and work closely with their advisors.

Catalogs for the current academic year, and 12 prior years, are available on the website (http://catalog.nku.edu).

Catalog Changes

The information contained in the catalog is accurate at the time of publication. However, Northern Kentucky University reserves the right to change regulations, policies, fees, services, and curricula through official actions of the NKU administration, its Board of Regents, or the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education.

Employment and Earnings of Kentucky College Graduates

Aggregate data on degrees and salary for all Kentucky colleges and universities is available from Kentucky’s Office for Education and Workforce Statistics (https://kcews.ky.gov/Reports/EmploymentEarningsJan2013.pdf). This data may be helpful to students seeking to match educational goals with jobs and professions, and in finding out about students who go on to pursue advanced degrees, average wages for various degree categories, and some insights into what happens to students who leave without a credential and do not continue their education elsewhere.
