Is the institution's default not to print course catalogs, course schedules, and directories, but instead make these materials available online?:
Yes

A brief description of the practice:

UIC's course catalogs, course schedules and directories have been available online for several years now, but in 2009 it became policy not to print the course catalog, instead referring students to the online resource. The printed catalogs are readily available to academic advisers, however, due to the nature of their position. All registration is completed on-line as well. Students have access to an on-line course schedule through this portal. The Campus Directory is available free on-line from the UIC home page, although a printed version is made available for purchase by departments.
