The Cal Poly Catalog is published every two years and the review cycle is currently underway for the next catalog, which will be the 2019-2021 catalog. Proposals for the next catalog must be approved by both the department and the college and submitted for university-level review on or before May 1, 2018. Refer to Submission Timelines for the 2019-2021 Catalog for a comprehensive timetable of the catalog review cycle.
There are certain types of proposals that may be applied to the most recently published catalog, which is the 2017-2019 catalog. To see the types of proposals that may be applied to the most current catalog, as well as quarterly deadlines for those submissions, refer to Submission Timelines for the 2017-2019 Catalog.
Note that proposals entered in the Curriculum Management system will have a default Start Term of Summer 2019, the first term of the 2019-2021 catalog. The Office of the Registrar will adjust the Start Term upon receipt of the proposal, if the proposal becomes effective earlier with the 2017-2019 catalog.
