Course Outline is a word document that you can use instead of a full syllabus. It contains the Higher Learning Commission's required information as part of the university's accreditation. The same information is also critical for students during the course registration process.


  1. Download the Course Outline file.
  2. As you fill in the information please remove the examples.
  3. Save the document on your computer or external storage device (flash drive, hard drive, etc.).
  4. Once you have completed and saved the document, click on the "Submit Course Outline" button below to upload your document.




Each faculty member has control over what is sent and not sent to the repository. If you object to sending your full syllabus then please use the course outline template as it contains substantially less information.
