Academic Catalog and Flow Sheets

Know Your Academic Requirements

Every undergraduate degree-seeking student at Salem State should be familiar with the university's curricula and policies. On this page you will find tools to help you with your plan of study, including the most recent master catalog and links to flow sheets for all academic programs.

The catalog contains information about degree requirements, programs of study and the university's academic policies. It also provides course listings by department and lists college personnel. Salem State publishes a master catalog every two years. Your catalog year is determined by when you were admitted to and first attended Salem State.

A flow sheet is a tool for you to use with your advisor as you work through your plan of study. The left side of the flow sheet generally contains all core requirements while the right side lists the requirements and support courses for your major (and a minor if required and a foreign language if required) and the minimum number of free electives required for your particular major. Please note that you must follow the flow sheet for the year in which you declare your major. Effective dates are found at the bottom right of the flow sheet. Hard copies of flow sheets can be obtained from the Student Navigation Center or from the Center for Academic Advising.
