The course syllabus is a multipurpose document. For faculty, it is a planning document specifying course content and learner performance expectations. For students, it is the information document that describes what they need to know and be able to do with what they know in order to be successful in the course and details how their success will be assessed.

The syllabus is often the first contact that students have with the instructor and the course because of HB2504 mandating that the document be available online. A student's first impression of a class may be formed while scanning this document.

Texas A&M University has specified a list of required elements for the syllabus. There are additional content elements that may enhance faculty/student communication and the student learning experience. This site provides information on all of these elements. It also includes templates for different approaches and "looks" for the syllabus to assist with setting the tone for the class.
