UT Dallas Syllabus Templates

UT Dallas faculty are required to post syllabi for all undergraduate and graduate organized courses within seven (7) days of the first day of classes in adherence to the Texas Administrative Code, Title 19, Part 1, Chapter 4, Subchapter N, ยง4.227, item 9 and UT Dallas Syllabus Policy UTDPP1111. Additionally, undergraduate syllabi for all courses must include the following information:

  1. Brief description of each major course requirement, including each major assignment and examination;
  2. the measurable learning outcomes for the course;
  3. a general description of the subject matter of each lecture or discussion; and
  4. lists of any required or recommended readings.

Syllabi for all courses must be posted within CourseBook even if they are also posted in eLearning.

UT Dallas requires these same criteria and the same posting deadline for syllabi for organized graduate courses.

Current standards permit the inclusion of syllabus policies and/or procedures by using a link to the UT Dallas Syllabus Policies and Procedures web page in the syllabus.
