Course Syllabus Shells

Beginning in the 2015-2016 Academic Year, the Norco College Academic Senate approved a syllabus “shell” as a best-practice tool for your consideration when developing your syllabus. Adoption of the syllabus shell is not mandatory; however, using it ensures that all students receive consistent information. 

It continues to be critical that the SLOs on your syllabus exactly match the language from the official Course Outline of Record.
