University, Departmental And Course Policies

Every department has its little special details and every course and instructor as well. Although some details may seem obvious to you because you're always in your own department, they may not be that obvious to your students. So be nice: let them know what's allowed or not!
The syllabus should give all the answers to students.

Here are some examples:

  • Are they allowed to ask for help or use outside sources?
  • Are they allowed to rewrite their paper?
  • Are you dropping the lowest grade?
  • Is there a way of getting extracredit?
