As a convenience, the online version of the John A. Logan College Catalog has been separated into links for ease of access. The current online version of the Catalog reflects the most recent changes to programs and course offerings and supersedes all prior print or online publications.

The Catalog is published in printed form every two years. Full pdf versions of the latest printed catalog and prior catalogs appear to the right of the page. To view the current online Catalog links (below) or full pdf representations of the printed Catalog (right), you will need an Adobe Reader.

Every reasonable effort has been made to determine that everything stated at this site is accurate. This Catalog is neither a contract nor an offer of a contract. The information it contains was accurate at the time of publication. Fees, deadlines, academic requirements, courses, degree programs, and other matters described in this catalog may change without notice. Not all courses are offered each academic year and faculty assignments may change.
