Rollback: Syllabus must contain the required OAPA boilerplate regarding: Course requirements and grading; Attendance and Participation; Goals and Learning Outcomes; Weekly Schedule; Academic Integrity; Support for Students Outside the Classroom; Religious Holidays; Security. Consult template uploaded with syllabus. Also, the Middle States Commission on Higher Education now requires that all syllabi include average minimum amount of out-of-class or independent learning expected per week.
