Submit a Catalog to CollegeSource

CollegeSource maintains an extensive database of college catalogs. Catalogs from United States institutions are collected annually (or by print cycle) where permission exists or where it is implied by subscription to a CollegeSource service. For more information, see CollegeSource’s Catalog Collection Policy.

CollegeSource proactively attempts to collect catalogs, but can also receive catalogs directly from the publishing institutions.

Unsure if CollegeSource already has a catalog? Use the Help button to submit an inquiry.


Before submitting a catalog, ensure that:

  • Curriculum changes are complete and formally approved.
  • Data is in one of the following formats:
    • Unsecured PDF;
    • HTML; or
    • DOC/DOCX.

Institutions are encouraged to submit catalogs in PDF format for faster processing.

Institutions that do not have a traditional catalog or cannot provide it in the above formats can submit a course data set.
