Master Syllabus Checklist & Template

A task force consisting of dozens of faculty, students services, and others updated the  master syllabus template below to reflect recent changes to college operations and better communicate the many support services offered by ACC.  The draft was put out for comment, and input gathered from across the college.  The final version was then discussed at several meetings of the Curriculum & Programs Committee, a shared governance group, and formally approved in April, 2019.  The following template is primarily intended for credit courses with sections taught at a college campus.  Continuing education, dual credit, and other sections taught in differing circumstances may need to make some minor adjustments, as appropriate.  

A special adaptation of the master syllabus template has been approved for use during the current pandemic crisis while campuses are closed to students.  This is available below.  Note that addenda and other changes will be made as the situation evolves.

If desired, the college policies section can be distributed as a separate handout from the rest of the course syllabus, which is provided below.  If this is done, it is recommended that the section covering Senate Bill 212 and Title IX Reporting Requirements be included in the regular course syllabus.
