Current and Prospective Students

We're upgrading Catalyst!

  • On October 15, there will be a new look and feel to Catalyst. The tabs--My Dashboard, My Academics, My Finances, My Admissions--will be replaced with navigation tiles.
  • During the Fall Reading Days, Catalyst will be UNAVAILABLE to all users beginning 5:00PM, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 10 until 8:00AM, MONDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2018 to complete the upgrade process.
  • Navigation of the Catalyst portal is the primary thing that's changing. The steps you follow to take care of your business in Catalyst today remain the same in the new system.

Review this Checklist for some important notes to keep in mind regarding the upgrade.
