What information should be on the course syllabus?

The main point of a syllabus is to set the "ground rules" for the course. They are used to set up any special policies a professor may have and to outline the material that will be covered during the term. Most of these pointers are taken from the Caltech Graduate Office's TA handbook.


For TAs of graduate level classes, the graduate students have compiled syllabi for each of the AY120 series classes. If the syllabus for your course is missing many of these points, please remind the professor of the graduate student-generated syllabi.
