Course Syllabi

A syllabus is the detailed, structured outline of a course that is usually composed by the instructor or department of said course, and distributed at the start of each term. Undergraduate and Graduate course syllabi become available on Student Center after the first month of the term. Students can retrieve these documents free of charge through their Student Center by navigating to "View and Order Docuements" > "Course Syllabi"

For Undergraduate and Graduate syllabi before 2009 contact the Department that offered the course.

Is a course syllabus the same as a course description? 

No. A course description is a brief overview or statement that informs students of the subject matter and breadth of a course. These descriptions are found within the Western Academic Calendar to assist students during enrollment periods. Course descriptions prior to the current year. If you think you need a description please reach out to us to confirm.
