Good to Know

Available Courses
You know that we have tons of courses at Armstrong, but how do you know what is left? You may ask if you, as a parent, have access to see our course availability. You do! By visiting our open class list page, you'll be able to see first hand what courses are available. You can't pick your son or daughter's course schedule, but you can be an active and involved parent by telling them about options they may not have considered.

Armstrong Undergraduate Catalog
Ask anyone a question about Armstrong and you will likely hear them mention the Undergraduate Catalog. The Armstrong Undergraduate Catalog contains just about all the information you and your student will ever need about Armstrong policies and programs. It also contains full course descriptions so that you can help your student make informed decisions about their course selections. Check out the Academic Success Center for more great helpful resources for you and your student.
