Webster's says:

curriculum, n. (pl. -lums, -la), a specific course of study or, collectively, all the courses of study in a school, university, etc.

"Curriculi, curricula, curriculi, curricula!

And this is why I always have to tell my DD that just because the dictionary lists something doesn't always make it true. I don't want her sounding ignorant, so she has to give the proper plural of Latinate words.

: am not : are not : is not
2
: have not : has not
3
: do not : does not : did not —used in some varieties of Black English
