Guidelines for system wide messages of course announcements
All messages are reviewed by the Office
of the Registrar before distriubtion.
Courses announced through the campus wide message system must meet established
guidelines for distribution. All announcements must contain the following
- 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
- New courses should not be advertised until they have been processed
through the appropriate approval process.
- Any 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.
- Additional text in the message should be consistent with standard
university language that is normally found in a university catalog
or summer brochure. ."
Since the official publications of courses offered at the university
are the catalogs and course listings published by the University Office
of the Registrar, faculty and staff are urged to keep system wide notifications
of courses to a minimum. Usually, faculty and staff will use this additional
method of notification for late course additions.
*Students should be directed to the Office of the Registrar's website
at http://depts.drew.edu/regist/ to view the course list for meeting
times/number of credits and the catalog for course descriptions, pre-requisites,
and the requirements the course satisfies.
Special note: Departments and divisions should not advertise their entire
offering through the campus wide email system
