Curriculog and Acalog Summary:

You will get access to two pieces of software, Curriculog and Acalog, which link together. Curriculog submits information to the Acalog Catalog. Every department has an Approver (Department Head) and an Originator (UWYO Staff). The Originator will learn the software for edits to the Acalog Catalog and to submit course CARF’s in Curriculog. The information will go through a workflow, where Approvers will receive an email where they will need to go into Curriculog and approve the changes the Originator submitted. Users will also have read-only access to the unpublished Acalog Catalog.

Acalog Catalog:

The Acalog Catalog is the definitive source for graduation requirements, outlining the course and programs students will need to complete to earn their degrees. The catalog of the University is the document of authority for all students. The information in the catalog supersedes that issued by any other unit if there is conflict between the two.

The 2023-2024 Acalog Catalog will start: 07/22/2022

Catalog Lock and Close Dates:

Once a catalog is locked and closed, it cannot be re-opened, nor can it be edited.
