Syllabus Templates

A primary purpose of a syllabus is to communicate to your students what the course is about, why it is taught, where it is going, and what will be required of the students for them to complete the course with a passing grade.

Syllabus Templates

Our syllabus templates make your work easier! Templates are ADA accessible and include sample statements that meet the Syllabus Best Practices [pdf] recommendations.  It is recommended that you view the syllabus best practices document and the appropriate syllabus template for your course.

There are two syllabus templates for face-to-face, online and blended courses.  The syllabus template for face-to-face courses labeled “Required” includes required syllabi sections from ACAF 2.03.  The syllabi labeled “Required and Recommended” includes required syllabi sections from ACAF 2.03 and other recommended syllabi sections.

The syllabus templates for online and blended courses include required syllabi sections from ACAF 2.03 and the Instructional Development Committee (INDEV) Distributed Education Delivery (DED) Syllabus Checklist for DED Approval.  The syllabi labeled “Required and Recommended” includes required sections from ACAF 2.03 and other recommended syllabi sections for online and blended courses.
