The College Catalog as a Contract.
Cherry, Robert L., Jr.; Geary, John P.
Journal of Law and Education, v21 n1 p1-32 Win 1992
Examines whether the college catalog and language therein constitute a legally binding contract between college and student. Categorizes catalog litigation by cases involving dismissal, granting of degrees, tuition, admission, and course offerings. The courts appear to agree that the student-college relationship is contractual in nature and that the relevant contractual terms are set forth in the catalogs. (202 references) (MLH)
