Syllabus Template

Your Boise State Syllabus

The syllabus for a course is an opportunity to frame the course, set expectations around tone and conduct (yours and that of your students), and serve as a source of important information for the course. As a result, it is important for faculty to be intentional about the way the syllabus is constructed and what messages it sends.

Boise State does not have a university-wide policy governing what must be in our course syllabi.  There are several exceptions to this:  If you are teaching a general education course governed by guidelines from University Foundations or an online course governed by eCampus guidelines, you should consult those programs for guidance about syllabus content.

For the rest of us, the CTL is developing a syllabus template for use starting Fall 2024. In the meantime, you can check out our blog post on “Designing Your Syllabus for Student Success” for tips on how to create an effective syllabus
