Reminder: Fall term syllabi statements

Submitted by Brian Niehoff

Dear deans, department heads, faculty and graduate teaching assistants:

As we begin preparations for the start of the 2019-2020 academic year, please be sure to review the information about course syllabi. Remember to include the mandatory statements in your fall course syllabi, and please consider including suggested optional statements, if they apply to your course. The website also includes a link to a syllabi template for online courses.

Please note that information concerning the use of Hale Library starting in fall 2019 has been updated. The new statements have been posted to the website. There have also been some changes made to the Student Resource page.

To assist in your planning, please make sure your exam schedule is up-to-date by reviewing the fall 2019 exam schedule

All faculty, instructors and graduate teaching assistants should refer to section F70-73 of the University Handbook to make sure they are in compliance with the final exam policy.

We ask you to adhere to the "Exam Prep Week" rule that no examination — unit or final — may be scheduled seven calendar days prior to the first scheduled day of semester examinations.

Online classes should adhere to the same academic calendar as courses taught on campus. This means that no classes should be held, and no assignments, exams or projects should be given or due, over fall break, which occurs Monday, Nov. 25, through Sunday, Dec. 1.

For those classes that meet on Saturdays or Sundays, please note that no class meeting may take place on Saturday, Nov. 30, and/or Sunday, Dec. 1, in accordance with the official fall break dates noted above.

Please contact our office at 785-532-4797 or niehoff@k-state.edu, if you have any questions.

We wish you a very successful and productive 2019-2020 academic year.

Best regards,


Brian Niehoff
Associate Provost for Institutional Effectiveness
