Preface

This catalog provides information about the academic programs of Cameron University. It also contains information concerning admissions, academic regulations and requirements, services available to students, academic offerings and a list of the administrative officers and faculty of the University. While every effort has been made to make this catalog as complete and accurate as possible, changes may occur at any time in requirements, deadlines, fees, curricula and courses listed in this catalog. All such changes are effective at such time as the proper institutional authorities determine and may apply not only to prospective students but also to those who are already enrolled in the University. This catalog should not be construed as a contract between Cameron and any person.  

The courses listed in a curriculum are required, but the display of a curriculum does not in any way indicate the length of time required for a student to finish degree requirements.  Rather, this display is intended as a guide to indicate the preferred order for completion of degree requirements. Exceptions to certain requirements may be petitioned through proper academic channels.

The online version of the catalog, presented here, reflects the most recent changes to requirements, deadlines, fees, curricula, and courses.  However, course descriptions may differ in some instances from actual content taught in some courses, due to advancements in the discipline or decisions to change the scope of the course. Thus, the descriptions that follow are not provided in the nature of a contractual obligation.  Some of the newer courses and changes in courses are included in this here pending their approval by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. Consequently, students should consult the appropriate departmental advisor and refer to the class schedule for the offerings in any given academic session.

Academic Calendars

Cameron University’s academic calendar is approved by the President or his/her designee and submitted annually to the State Regents. The academic calendar shall describe any alternative schedules. Submission is due by January 1 prior to the summer semester to which the proposed calendar applies.

The uniform academic calendar for institutions in The Oklahoma State System of Higher Education consists of the fall and spring semesters and a summer term defined as follows:

  • The summer session begins about the last week in May or the first week in June and ends late July or early August.
  • The fall semester begins mid- to late August or early September, closing just prior to the Christmas vacation period.
  • The spring semester begins following the Christmas vacation in January and ends prior to the first of June.
  • Academic terms shorter than a traditional semester or summer session, generally referred to as “intersessions,” may be conducted between semesters or between the summer session and spring and fall semesters. Block or alternative course schedules may also occur within the dates set forth for a semester or summer session.

The approved calendar is distributed to all departments and is included in the Enrollment Schedule each semester and summer sessions.

Outcomes Assessment

Cameron University's comprehensive outcomes assessment program, mandated by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education, consists of entry level assessment, general education assessment, program outcomes assessment, and student satisfaction assessment.
