You will receive a course syllabus for each of your classes on the first day of class. Your syllabus will provide you with information about the course readings and assignments, due dates and deadlines, exam times, grading policies, and other pertinent course information. Some of you may have already been exposed to a class syllabus in high school and are familiar with its content; however, college syllabi tend to be more detailed due to the complexity of the courses. Each instructor makes choices about the specific content of a course, so you may find that students in a different section of the same course have a different syllabus or different assignments and readings. Your syllabus will help you manage your time and plan your semester.
