OMG: My prof keeps changing what and when our assessments are, to the point where the syllabus is nearly completely useless, and I'm freaking sick of it.

  1. Any changes to your syllabus need to be made by unanimous consent of your class contact your associate dean with your concerns.

    1. Good to know. I hope OP takes your advice.

  2. Yeah, just to echo what #1 has said: a syllabus isn't just a document, it's a contract. Professors cannot change anything to do with the assignments/tests (e.g., date due, weight, add or drop) without unanimous consent from the class.

  3. It might say on it "Subject to change without notice" or something like that. Then they can do whatever they want.

    1. It doesn't work that way. The university rules exist to prevent students from getting screwed over; the prof can't just say "those rules don't apply to me".
