Correctly Format Your Syllabus

Attention Faculty and Preparers:

Whether creating, restoring or changing a course, faculty must supply preparers with an appropriately-formatted syllabus.

Format

Outline the course by week, date, or topic and include weighted grading criteria. Required reading should be explained with a reading list linked to weeks, dates or topics.

If you are:
  • Creating a new course
  • Restoring an old course
  • Changing or adding consultation hours for an existing course

You must explain how consultation hours are implemented and monitored.

If you are:
  • Creating a new course
  • Restoring an old course
  • Changing or adding noncontact hours for an existing course

You must describe course activities that do not involve faculty contact and explain how they are evaluated.
