In accordance with the guidelines recommended by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, it is necessary that Division Heads have on file a copy of the syllabus for each course taught on the Sumter Campus of U.S.C. by both full-time and part-time faculty.  The syllabus for each course should delineate the course objectives, aims, requirements, and specific methods of evaluation for each course.  The syllabus should be sufficiently complete to give students a clear understanding of the content or expectations of the course.

Copies of all final examinations and other methods of student evaluation must also be submitted to respective Division Heads.
