Frequently Asked Questions


Does Dartmouth have a print ORC/Catalog?

While there is no central printing of the ORC/Catalog, .pdf versions of past ORC/Catalogs are available on the Registrar's website and may be printed.

How do I print the ORC/Catalog?
  • To print a single page in the current catalog: on the top right of each page of the ORC/Catalog, under "MyCatalog" there is a "print this page" button, select that and your single page will print.

  • To print selected pages or the entire ORC/Catalog .pdf: on the left side of the ORC/Catalog select "Printable Version" to bring you to a .pdf of the current ORC/Catalog where you may print the entire document or just the pages that you need by navigating through the .pdf.

  • NOTE:  if you have access to the SmartCatalog system, also see the Guide for "Printing the Catalog using the SmartCatalog system."


How do I modify links to the ORC/Catalog on my webpage?

There are two ways of linking to the ORC/Catalog:
  • General link – remains the same every year
  • Specific links – updates needed for older catalog years

    • Links to any pages within the ORC/Catalog that need updating to link to the current edition. For example, any direct links to regulations, department/program requirements, or courses require updating.
    • Note that instead of the year, the word "current" appears in the URL:

change to:


Are there tools to assist with locating content?

Yes. An ORC/Catalog Site Map is on the first page and a Table of Contents and an Index may be found in the "Printable Version" within past ORC/Catalog .pdfs. Select CTRL+F to search by keyword in these older versions. The current ORC/Catalog is searchable by entering keywords in the Catalog Search box anywhere within the catalog.


What is MyCatalog?

MyCatalog is a tool available to anyone with internet access.  It allows you to save links to specific pages of the ORC/Catalog in one space, for easy access.  These links can be arranged in folders which then, if you wish, can be emailed to friends, advisors/advisees, professors, family, etc. Anyone may create their own account. For more information about MyCatalog, see the MyCatalog Guide. Try it out!
