2.1.9 Course Descriptions

The Committee on Courses of Instruction reminds instructors and departments to keep Berkeley Academic Guide course descriptions and requirements up to date. Students and advisers use the Guide descriptions to plan academic programs. To help students plan effectively, it is essential to provide correct and current information about the courses. The information should be available to students prior to the enrollment period.

Descriptions that no longer accurately reflect current course content should be updated. Requirements that go beyond routine reading, writing, and studying assignments should be noted in the course descriptions. Such requirements include special or weekend field trips, community service work, off-campus activities, and special meetings outside of normal class time.
