Syllabi Requirements, Checklist, and Required Template Insert

To meet accreditation standards everyone MUST use as the first page of their syllabus the Syllabus Template. The rest of the syllabus should be attached behind this first page.  Do not send this as two documents, the office staff does not have the time to connect them together.  This is the syllabus that will be provided to your students.

Currently there are two syllabi templates: 

Eureka Syllabus Template: includes emergency information relative to the Eureka campus

DN Syllabus Template:  includes emergency information relative to the Del Norte campus

Faculty teaching from other sites may revise the emergency section of either template as necessary to reflect emergency procedures for their location.


Naming the Syllabus Each syllabus should be saved with the name in this format YearSemester (F,S, X),

Course ID and Section Number, Instructor Name (ex. 2012F-AG12-E2112-Rulofson.pdf).   It should be sent in PDF format to the administrative assistant for your division. Contact you administrative assistant if you are unable to PDF a document.


Submit a separate email for each different class for which you have a syllabus to the office staff. Use the subject line to indicate “Syllabus for Class Name, your name.”  This will make it easier for the staff to check them off as they are submitted.
