The syllabus should contain the following information:

- A brief list or summary of topics or projects covered.
- Course requirements and methods of evaluation.
- Grading criteria, including whether or not the plus/minus system will be used.
- Contact information (instructor’s name, office hours, office location and campus phone number).
- For a General Education course, the syllabus should describe how it meets the currently approved goals of the General Education section in which it resides.
- For an Upper Division General Education course, the syllabus should include a statement that informs students that the course is an Upper Division General Education course and that it requires completion of writing assignments totaling a minimum of 2,500 words.
