For each undergraduate course, the instructor should select a textbook and prepare a syllabus. The syllabus will be given to the student at the first meeting of the course. The instructor should, at a minimum, cover all the material listed in the syllabus and use the selected textbook for out-of-class reading. If the instructor cannot adhere to this policy, he/she should report the expected deviations to the academic unit head/program chair immediately. Uniformity, particularly in undergraduate prerequisite courses, helps preserve continuity.
The syllabus should contain:
All syllabi must include the attendance policy. Although there is no universitywide policy regarding penalties for non-attendance, students are expected to attend all classes.
All syllabi should contain a statement on academic honesty.
Copies of all syllabi and handouts must be on file in each academic unit office.
