Course Syllabi

Course Syllabi must follow the NC State Syllabus Regulation. Syllabi are required to be submitted when proposing the following:

  • Creation of a new course
  • Specific types of revisions as follows:
    • Revision in credit/contact hours
    • Revision in grading method from credit-only to letter-grading
    • Revision in course description reflecting a change in course content
    • Revision in course content
    • Revision in student learning outcomes

For assistance in creating a Syllabus, a new Syllabus Tool * has been developed to help Faculty with course revision and development. This tool is a web-based application that walks the user step-by-step through the syllabus requirements and can be recalled each semester and updated for the next semester offering. The tool is programmed with the required boilerplate text, standard course meeting times and other syllabus requirements so that a syllabus can easily be created to meet the regulation.

*NOTE: Please try a different browser when using the syllabus tool if experience problems with editing.
