Academic Calendar

All faculty are required to provide registered students a complete syllabus during the first week of any semester. This requirement includes those teaching in the accelerated terms such as A2 and in short courses that do not start the first week of the semester. The faculty will notify departmental personnel, per departmental procedures, to confirm this requirement has been met so course enrollment may be included in the state reports.
