Policy on Syllabi

The School of Arts and Sciences reminds faculty that College level policies on Syllabi exist.

DOPS I:16:00 and I:16:02 require that students receive basic information, including clear, concise, and appropriate grading policies during the first week of class. Copies must be supplied to the department chair and Dean's office during the first week of class. DOPS I:16:00 lists specific minimum topics that must be included. In addition, the Handbook for Faculty and Librarians indicates that the official course description from the college catalog be included, along with the Learning Outcomes from the Senate-approved course proposal and additional Intellectual Foundations Learning Outcomes should be included for IF courses.

Where Senate-approved Learning Outcomes are not available, the department should submit a proposal to the CSCC including those outcomes at the soonest opportunity.
