Cat College Session 300 Course Cat-alog



Cat College Extension is now in session. You may take any courses from the catalog, from any level, for cat education enrichment. Your classwork during this time won’t cumulate in a degree, but you can gain valuable knowledge about cats large and small through illustrative videos, interactive maps, class projects and informative articles. In addition, your quiz results will garner points for your Club Cat account. You must pass the quiz with a score of 60 percent or higher to receive credit (i.e., Club Cat points) for taking the course. Good luck in your studies!

If you have any technical questions, email Cat Support.

There is only a final exam for the most recent level, right now it would be level 500.
