​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​CalArts publishes its Course Catalog online annually in the summer to provide an overview of the courses offered and program requirements for both undergraduate and graduate degree and certificate programs. It also provides a list of the most current policies that are applicable to CalArts' student body.

The Institute reserves the right to change, discontinue or add academic requirements, courses and programs of study. Such changes may be made without notice, although every effort will be made to provide timely notice to students. It is the responsibility of the individual student to confirm that all appropriate degree requirements are met.
