SYLLABI REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL FACULTY

M. Ron Cox, Ph.D., Associate Dean for Academic and Student Affairs

The office of the Vice Provost for Regional Campuses and Continuing Education and other agencies require that a syllabus be on file in the office of the Associate Dean of Academic and Student Affairs for EACH COURSE AND EACH SECTION, (for example, if you are teaching more than one section of a course then we need a copy for each section). 

The University's "Center for Teaching Excellence" has assembled a web page with "sample learning outcomes" in various academic disciplines which you might find useful in constructing your syllabi (which need to specify "learning outcomes" instead of "course goals" for purposes of our upcoming SACS accreditation).  The site is located at http://kudzu.ipr.sc.edu/effectiveness/outcomes.htm.

Other helpful information for constructing syllabi is found at http://www.ipr.sc.edu/effectiveness/syllabus.htm and http://www.ipr.sc.edu/effectiveness/sampsyll.htm

The syllabus should contain:

• Class meeting schedule
• Course outline/learning outcomes
• Instructor name, office location, office hours
• Textbook used (when appropriate)
• How grades will be computed including the number and type of tests and other 
    assignments
• Grading scale
General Education Goals

*For purpose of the SACS reaccreditation, you should also include how your class addresses the “General Education Goals” of the campus.

In addition, if your attendance policy differs from the policy in the USC Lancaster Bulletin, that information should be placed in your syllabus.

Syllabi for classes are due in the Office of Academic and Student Affairs on or before the first day of classes.
