AY2017 Curriculum Overview

A "curriculum" is a set of requirements for graduation and courses which may be taken. A student's curriculum is determined by the year of their enrollment, and with the exception of a change in enrollment status, it will not normally change during a student's time at APU.A student's enrolled college, language basis and application type (international or domestic) can also affect the requirements for graduation and courses available. Please identify your curriculum from the page below page and refer to that curriculum's document for more details
