Please also see Notes following for more information about using these archives and about finding graduate catalogs earlier than 1999.

For archived catalogs Fall 2012 and forward, please choose from the drop-down menu at the top-right corner of the catalog home page.


  • Full print versions of the graduate catalog (Fall 1997-Summer 1998 and earlier) are archived at the central campus M.D. Anderson Memorial Library. Catalogs from 1998 forward are published online only.
  • The online archives are presented for your reference. In cases of discrepancy between online archived catalog information - including .pdf files - and the corresponding print version, the print version is considered the official version. See also the online graduate catalog disclaimer .
  • When searching archived material always check page dates to insure that you are looking at the historical information you were seeking. Many archived pages contain links which may lead to information outside the archives, or which may link back to current information (e.g. course descriptions, etc.).
  • From within graduate catalogs 1998 through 2010, you may select “Catalog Home” to find a link back to the current graduate catalog online.
