    2. Select Schedule of Classes.
    3. Select the appropriate term.
    4. Select Course Listing.
    5. Select the course/department acronym, e.g., ANTH for Anthropology.
    6. Find the course.
    7. Select Syllabus Repository.
    8. Clicking on this link will show a list of syllabi associated with that term, and clicking on a syllabus from an individual instructor will display the syllabus.

Official Syllabus

  • The official course syllabus is only available to registered students and can be accessed via ELMS (Electronic Learning Management System).
  • The course instructor usually posts this information @ 48 hours prior to the first class meeting. If the course instructor doesn't post it on ELMS, they must provide a syllabus on the first day your class meets.
