Courses offered at Drew University are normally advertised by the Office of the Registrar. However, to assist in the awareness of late offerings to the schedule, faculty departments sometimes utilize the campus wide information system for course announcements. In addition, some faculty will post hard copies of course announcements in various locations on campus. Please note, the advertisement of courses via email or through university postings should be kept at a minimum. The following are the established university guidelines for course advertisements.
Courses announced through the campus wide message system or a via a university posting must contain the following information:
- Course title, number, and section.*
- Days and Meeting Times of the Course.*
- Pre-requisite or Co-requisite of the Course*
- Number of credits assigned to the Course*
- Name of the course instructor. *
(Please note, the instructor of the course must be processed through the Office of Human Resources before he/she can be listed as the professor of the course. Contact the Office of the Registrar or Office of Human Resources for additional information.)
- Semester the course is offered.
- When including a course description, your email announcement should direct students to the online catalog through a link on the registrar’s office website . For course posting, descriptions may be copied and pasted from the web on to your hard copy announcement from the online catalog.*
- New courses should not be advertised until they have been processed through the appropriate approval process. Contact the Office of the Registrar ext. 3025 for additional information.
- Any email message that includes information regarding a requirement that the advertised course satisfies should also include a link to the appropriate online catalog for additional information. For hard copy posting, students should be told to check the catalog to verify requirements a course satisfies.*
- Additional text in the message should be consistent with standard university language that is normally found in a university catalog or summer brochure.
*Students should be directed to the Office of the Registrar’s website to view the course list for meeting times/number of credits and the catalog for course descriptions, pre-requisites, and requirements the course satisfies.
