Purdue Syllabus Template

Constructing a syllabus is an important component of the course design process. Below is a downloadable syllabus template that we have provided as a template with selected elements of a Purdue syllabus, as well as recommended language related to University policies and resources for students.

This syllabus template contains many components that may or may not be relevant to the structure of your class. The fundamental requirements are: course and instructor information, a course description, a description of the grading system, and a statement on campus emergency procedures. The Provost's Office strongly encourages the inclusion of course learning outcomes as well.

Each section includes some sample text and/or links where you can find appropriate language. The Campus Resources and Services provides additional links to resources that may help in constructing your syllabus and working with your students. You will also find the most recent email from the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning with suggestions for your syllabus.
