This page provides information about classes offered in current and upcoming terms, as well as a look back over previous terms so students may get a picture of what courses are offered over a school year. Past offerings are no guarantee of future terms, but can be helpful for general planning purposes. Some courses are offered on an odd- or even-year basis only. Information is correct at the time of posting, and is strictly for the convenience of IOA students for an overview of course offerings. Please see the PSU class schedule for official listings, changes, cancellations, and course details. If you have any questions, please contact the IOA.
