Senate Policy:  43-00, Syllabus

1. A syllabus available on a tangible medium of expression such as the Web, paper, or other form, must be distributed to students in each course within the first ten calendar days of a semester or its equivalent.

2. All syllabi must include the instructor's course policies for academic integrity, examinations, and basis for grades (including such information as the number and types of exams and other graded assignments and their approximate dates and percentage or point values relative to the final grade), and information on procedures related to academic adjustments identified by the Office of Disability Services (suggested language is available on the ODS website, http://equity.psu.edu/ods/).

3. The codification of syllabus policy does not prevent faculty from adjusting early planning to respond to class needs.

4. Modifications to course policies, examinations, basis for grades or other information provided in the initial syllabus should be distributed to students in a timely manner through a tangible medium of expression.
