iFalcon Study Skills - Syllabus

Do you know where your instructor's office is? How about where to get help with that English paper you're writing, or the dates of exams in your history class? These are questions that some students struggle to answer if they are not familiar with all the academic resources available to them.


One of the most vital resources in a class is the class syllabus. The class syllabus includes information you will need throughout the semester, from important dates to how your grade is calculated in the class. It is imperative to become familiar with the syllabus and the workings of each class. A successful student always has his syllabus on-hand and refers to it continuously throughout the course.


The exercises in this module are designed to help you best employ your class syllabus.

Students who comprehend their syllabi:

  • Are aware of all required class materials
  • Know all due-dates and dates of exams
  • Know times and locations of tutoring centers on campus
  • Can calculate their grade in a course at any time
