UT Dallas Syllabus Templates

In April 2006, the Committee on Educational Policy and the Faculty Senate approved a template for UT Dallas' syllabi. The template has been reproduced in different formats; choose the format that works best for you.

Pursuant to the Texas Administrative Code, Title 19, Part 1, Chapter 4, Subchapter N, §4.227, item 9, syllabi for all undergraduate 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.

Additionally, syllabi for undergraduate courses must be posted within CourseBook within seven (7) days of the first day of classes per Texas Administrative Code, Title 19, Part 1, Chapter 4, Subchapter N, §4.228.

The current templates no longer include the multipage UT Dallas Syllabus Policies and Procedures text which was historically included with all syllabi. Current standards permit the inclusion of these policies by using a link to the UT Dallas Syllabus Policies and Procedures web page in the syllabus.
