The general description of the content of a course is found either in the online college catalog or a particular term's online schedule of sections by clicking on the course name. This description applies to all sections of the course and all instructors of the course during a specified academic year.
The schedule also lists the textbook(s) needed for the section.
For information about what a particular section of a course requires beyond the course description, request from the instructor of the section the syllabus, which provides a general schedule of assignments, tests, grading criteria, and other requirements. This is usually available the first meeting of the section. For answers to questions about these requirements before the syllabus is available, contact the instructor by phone or email before the first meeting.
