Purpose

In agreement with the Board of Regents Bylaw 4.1, the College of Nursing is required to “inform students concerning the requirements, standards, objectives and evaluation procedures at the beginning of each course.” The syllabus serves as a formal record of course content in a consistent, summary format, and is used to disseminate information in a structured way for presentation to accrediting agencies, nursing boards, other academic institutions and working committees for use in course and program evaluation. All syllabi past and present are stored electronically. Syllabi must follow the guidelines and templates provided in Appendix X.

Practice

  1. Each course must have a syllabus and follow the templates in Appendix X.
  2. Each course may elect to have an addendum in addition to the syllabus. The purpose of the addendum is to provide additional, supplemental materials that are specific for the course and/or division. The template for the addendum is included in the appendix.
  3. The syllabus and addendum (if appropriate) should be developed and updated prior to the start of a course and must be posted for student viewing no later than one week (7 days) prior to the beginning of the semester.
