Course Syllabus


Students have the right to expect the course to correspond generally to the description in the official Bulletin of the University of Kentucky and the right to be informed in writing (in the course syllabus) at the first class meeting about the nature of the course--the content, the activities to be evaluated, and the grading practice to be followed. Whenever factors such as absences or late papers will be weighed in determining grades, a student shall be informed. All students must be informed in writing of the course content and other matters listed in this rule at no cost to the student. Syllabi may be posted electronically; this must be done by the first class meeting of the semester and the syllabus must remain available there for the entire semester. All students officially enrolled in a course shall, upon request, be provided a copy of the course syllabus free of charge.
