UMKC Syllabus Components

Syllabi distributed to students must contain all of the UMKC required components. For your convenience, the UMKC Syllabus Components document is available in both PDF and Word versions. A syllabus should be uploaded into CourseLeaf for all New Course Proposals and Course Edits. If you use Blackboard for your course, you may refer students to the Blackboard content (see sample language below).
